    "The Woman Can Decide for Herself" | Kakuma, Kenya | English

    The Intersection of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Disability

    A qualitative examination of the specific risks, needs and barriers that refugees with disabilities face in accessing sexual and reproductive health services—and of their capacities and practical ways to overcome these challenges. Findings are based on findings from camp-based refugees in Kakuma, Kenya.

    The needs of crisis-affected populations with disabilities are notably absent from global sexual and reproductive health and gender guidelines and standards for humanitarian practice. To address this gap, this study presents a qualitative examination of the specific risks, needs and barriers for refugees with disabilities to accessing SRH services, as well as their capacities and practical ways to overcome these challenges.


    The report includes major findings, as well as specific recommendations for donors and government supporting agencies, as well as disability-focused organizations.


    The target population of refugees was those with long-term physical, intellectual, sensory and mental impairments who experience barriers in society that hinder their full and effective participation on an equal basis with others. Participants includes the refugees with disabilities, as well as their caregivers and family members.

    The appendices include images and photographs used in the research. To gauge how refugees with disabilities perceived various treatment towards persons with disabilities, cards were developed with pictorial scenarios and accompanying text, for participants to sort into categories of "acceptable," "unacceptable" or mixed treatment. To gauge how refugees with disabilities perceived various treatment towards persons with disabilities, photographs of the community were taken for participants to sort as to whether the locations or persons were seen as safe, unsafe or both.

    The assessments were done in partnership with the International Rescue Committee.
