Reproductive health services for women with disabilities in Nepal: Challenges and possible solutions

April 21, 2023

Whenever the concepts of disability and womanhood intersect, they often result in the marginalization of women with disabilities. These women face double discrimination as they are not only subjected to gender-based violence but also to social exclusion and discrimination due to their disabilities. The intersection of gender and disability, therefore, leads to the marginalization of women with disabilities, who experience social exclusion and violence in the discriminatory social landscape of Nepal.

Despite being entitled to basic services such as education, healthcare, communication and reproductive health services, they are often denied these rights due to their status as women with disabilities. Reproductive health services, which are critical for the physical and emotional well-being of women, are even more inaccessible to women with disabilities due to social stigma, lack of awareness, and lack of affordability and accessibility.
