This resource, developed by the United Nations Population Fund and Women Enabled International, provides practical and concrete guidance on the provision of inclusive and accessible services related to gender-based violence (GBV) and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for women and young persons with disabilities. While the primary audience is GBV- and SRHR-related service providers, the guidelines are a valuable resource for all stakeholders — including those in government, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations — involved in designing, developing, implementing or advocating for GBV or SRHR services for women and young persons with disabilities. The recommendations are aimed at all settings, including low-, middle- and high-resource settings, as well as humanitarian emergency settings.
