Disability inclusive sexual, reproductive health and rights research – Handicap International



  • Presentation of the context


2-1- Presentation of the Humanity & Inclusion Programme

HI has more than 30 years of experience implementing projects in emergency response and development cooperation in more than 60 countries.  Through these projects HI promotes the implementation of human rights and in particular the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). HI’s role is to advocate for disability inclusion into policies, mainstream services, disaggregated data collection, knowledge management and humanitarian programmes and to provide best practice and technical support to governmental agencies, international organizations, public and private services and CSOs towards inclusive obligations and practices.

International data and research shows persons with disabilities   and in particular female persons with disabilities are often excluded from services, public life, from political participation and decision making processes.  More than 160 countries worldwide ratified the UN Convention on the Right of Persons with Disabilities. But despite the legal commitments state parties, international agencies such as UN organizations, INGOs and national and local organizations and service providers are lacking in the implementation of the rights of persons with disabilities in all relevant domains such as protection, education, economic and employment opportunities, political participation and access to health and Sexual and Reproductive Health.

As an expert in disability inclusion and an active member of international and national disability networks HI enjoys a high reputation and has good cooperative relationships with organisations of people with disabilities (OPDs). In the current multinational WISH 2 Action programme HI provides technical and operational  contribution towards promoting universal health coverage for  all.


2-2- Presentation of the project

WISH2ACTION, a DFID 3-year funded project (2018-2021) with potential option on 1,5, year extension, is being implemented by a consortium of 6 internal organizations (IPPF, MSI, IRC, DMI, OPTIONS and HI) to deliver 16.921m CYPs, 2.2m additional users. Humanity and Inclusion (HI) is operating alongside consortium partners in 8 countries (Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Mozambique, Madagascar and Uganda) out of the 16, with a mandate of ensuring that the project interventions and services are inclusive, and equally accessible by all people, including people with disabilities.

Persons with disabilities usually face discrimination and exclusion to participation and access to health services in general, and in particular sexual, reproductive health and rights.

Under the scope of WISH2ACTION project implementation, HI has developed strategies aiming at promoting sustainable disability inclusive SRHR practices across its intervention countries.

Based on the results of the comprehensive evidence gap map analysis (EGM) (conducted by ITAP 2/20) that aims to map on ‘what works’ to ensure people living with disabilities have access to sexual reproductive health services in low and middle-income countries and the HI’s overall WISH2ACTION M&E and learning strategy  the aim of the research  is to focus on  the most excluded  vulnerable  groups. The EGM shows that “most evidence was found under the outcome areas of health and knowledge and awareness, whilst behaviour and health services showed significant gaps”. In particularthe sub categories:  Stigma/negative attitudes and discrimination from persons with disability themselves, Sexual behaviour and sexual pleasure, Sexual orientation, Communication and support-seeking Pregnancy and births and maternal health, Abortion and post abortion care, Providers/service quality and after care, Livelihoods/costs and confidentiality reflect a huge gap.


In order to better understand the factors, drivers and patterns of exclusion for persons with disabilities to SRHR that leads to non-access to services HI aims to reach the groups of persons with disabilities that does not get access to the services after  more than 18 months of project implementation. The findings and understanding in the local context of the 2 selected countries, the Asian Bangladesh and the African Uganda, should help to effectively address factors for exclusion and to create behavioral change towards inclusion.

HI, in liaison with its in-country partners and the cooperating DPOs on WISH2ACTION project will be carrying out these researches in selected countries. Study findings will be precious instruments accessible by relevant actors at all levels, to feed advocacy and SBCC efforts, in the bid to shifting norms, attitudes and policies towards increased inclusiveness in program designs and services.


  • Presentation of the research


3-1- Why this research?

Findings of this applied research will guide operational actions and feed advocacy activities to promote the right of the most vulnerable people.

According to the UNCRPD definition disability is defined as a conditions that is based on two relevant components, the long-term impairment of the individual and the barriers that hinders people to actively participate in society and to access services such as SRHR. Due to a negative interrelation between disability, education and economic opportunities people with disabilities are mainly belonging to the group of the extreme poor and hard to reach in societies.  In particular women and girls are often excluded from health and SRHR services due to multiple barriers entailing, disability misconception, myths about sexuality of persons with disabilities, social and gender norms, discrimination and stigma, institutional barriers etc. From early age many persons with disabilities are facing discrimination, rejection and human right violations that  often  results in  additional internalized barriers such as not feeling  entitled  to  have the  rights such as taking  free decisions about   the own sexuality  or  accessing  family planning services without being blamed etc. .

Qualitative research on this topics and on the  obstacles hindering people to access SRHR services is  rare .  The Department for International Development (DFID) has contracted the e-Pact consortium to undertake Third Party Monitoring (TPM) of  the Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH)[1] to map the evidence of gaps in  data and research  in regards to  SRHR.   The  evidence gap map  (EGM) analyses on ‘what works’ to ensure persons with disabilities have access to sexual reproductive health services in low and middle-income countries (LMICS).  The EGM shows that across all outcome areas, there is a low amount of evidence in relation to ‘what works’ to ensure persons with disabilities have access to SRH services in LMICS. Most evidence on was found under the outcome areas of health and knowledge and attitudes, whilst behavior and access to services showed significant gaps In particular the aspects of stigma/negative attitudes and discrimination from persons with disability themselves, sexual behaviour and communication and support seeking are underrepresented in surveys and research. Little is known about  identification and reduction of barriers in regards to  internal and external behavioral and  attitudinal barriers  for women and girls with disabilities . In order to address challenges and barriers of these women and girls and to plan for SRHR social behavior changes in the scope of SRHR service provision ensuring the inclusion of women and girls with disabilities it is relevant to understand   communication and behaviour of women and girls with disabilities themselves.  In order to guide actors working in SRH service delivery and communication, advocacy and cooperating with OPDs it would be helpful to learn about  types, causes, drivers  and mechanism  that prevents  women and girls with disabilities from enjoying their  sexual and reproductive health rights .


3-2- Research objectives


  • Overall objectives of the study/ research

The general objective of the research is to identify and better understand the institutional, cultural or personal barriers, constraints and resistances that lead the most vulnerable people and  in particular women and girls with disabilities  not to access SRH service and to enjoy their sexual rights.


  • Specific objectives

The specific objectives of the research are:

  • To propose a short literature review on the lack of access to SRH services by vulnerable population (focus on Persons with disabilities) in LMIC focusing on qualitative and quantitative studies.
  • To identify and describe who are these “missing” patients (e.g. gender, age, disability status, severity level of limitations, economic status…)
  • To understand the internal and external factors and drivers of persons’ with disabilities that exclude them from accessing SRHR
  • To explore and analyze their perception of their sexual rights and interests in regards to SRHR services
  • To include a section on the impact of Covid19 crisis on the management of their health, especially when it comes to SRH
  • To learn from the most marginalized groups in regards to SRHR what are the needs and requirements in order to promote successfully their inclusion into SRHR.

This research will focus on disability impact but will include also others criteria as gender, age, migrants status etc. into analysis.


3-3- Location

3-3-1.Background of disability in Uganda

The National Policy on disability 2006 and Persons with Disabilities Act 2006 define the concept, “Disability”, as a permanent and substantial functional limitation of daily life activities caused by physical, mental or sensory impairment and environmental barriers resulting in limited participation. The definition recognizes disability as a result of the interaction between impairment and external barriers. The definition aligns with legal definition enshrined in the CRPD.


Unfortunately, Uganda does not use a standardized categorization of disabilities what results in gaps of comparable disaggregated data.  National documents code disability differently. The Persons with Disabilities Act 2006 categorize disabilities as follows: Difficulty in hearing, Difficulty in speaking and conveying messages, Difficulty in moving around and using other body parts, Difficulty in seeing, Strange behaviors, Epilepsy, Difficulty in learning, Leprosy, Loss of feeling and Multiple disabilities – a combination of any of the above disabilities[2].

Prevalence of disability in Uganda.


The National Population and Housing Census of 2014 used some Washington Group short set of questions to screen persons with disabilities. It incorporated 4 out of 6 Washington Group questions. It estimated national disability prevalence rate at 13.6% among the population aged five years and above, which is close to 15%, World Health Organization estimated figure. Prevalence at lowered age of 2 years and above is estimated at 12.4%.

Furthermore, the prevalence rate is higher among females (14.5%) compared to males (10.0%). Likewise, the prevalence was noted to be higher in urban (15.0%) as compared to rural (12.0%) areas. There is need for further researcher to find out the escalated prevalence rate in urban areas. Unfortunately, disability has always been linked to poverty conditions in rural areas.

In Uganda persons with disabilities face many barriers in accessing mainstream services such as education, livelihood activities, political participation, social protection and access to health and SRHR services.

The WISH2ACTIOn project is implemented by HI in 3 districts: Yume, Arua and Mbale. The research will focus on at least two of the three sites, based on the W2A intervention areas.


The Government of Bangladesh is mandated to “provide primary health services to each and every citizen… residing in any geographical location within the territory of Bangladesh” (National Health Policy, 2011). As part of its Sustainable Development Goal targets, the government is aiming to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. This means providing access to quality essential health services; safe, effective, and affordable essential medicines and vaccines; and protection from financial risk[3] [4] [5].


Disability is a vital issue with respect to human rights and cannot be sidelined while considering national development activities of a country. Most of the welfare countries across the world have structured plan to implement various special services as required for disables and strong disability law to establish socio-economic and political rights of disabled people. Likewise, government of Bangladesh has recognized the issues of disabled persons’ righteous perspectives very seriously and enacted disability law under “person with disability’s rights and protection Act 2013” (Women with Disabilities Development Foundation 2014) with the aim at quick improvement in the process of social and economic inclusion of people with disability.

Persons with disabilities are often excluded from the development. However, disability is central to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which commits to ‘leaving no one behind’ and has targets for disability inclusion within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)[6]. Like in  other countries persons with disabilities of Bangladesh especially young and women with disabilities have least access to modern Family Planning (FP) and Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) services.

The  Bangladesh Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) 2010 used the WGQ short set questions and reported a disability prevalence of 9.1%[7].

Moreover, as per the Household Income and Expenditure Survey, 2016  Bangladesh   has  6.94% population with disability  and  a prevalence of 7.59% women with disability; 50% women with disability are never married and  72% live with their parents/sibling [8]. 40% reported sometimes being mistreated by their family members[9].  For instance in Kurigam Bangladesh 60.22% persons with disabilities have unmet health needs compared to 27.59 of people without disabilities [10]and  women  and girls with disabilities lack access SRHR services.

The WISH2ACTIOn project is implemented by HI in 2 areas : Kuligram and Sitakinda. The research will focus on these two areas, based on the W2A intervention sites.

3-4- Target Population

This research will mainly target women and girls with disabilities (all type of functional limitations, all level of severity) who will need SRH services but not use it

It will include their relatives with a focus on men (husband, father, brother, caregivers …).

Others relevant stakeholders will be included to address the objectives (women with disabilities who access SRHR services, female caregivers of women and girls with disabilities,  women  without disabilities, civil society organizations[11], health staff, authorities, parents clubs of children with disabilities …).


3-5- Methodology

The research will be a qualitative research conducting individual and collective interviews with persons with disabilities who use and not use SRH services and others relevant stakeholders. Washington Group Questions[12] will be the guiding instrument to categories persons according to disability.

The research will follow inclusive practices by involving selected persons with disabilities at least into protocol and tool development and data collection and analysis.

The methodology will be clearly defined under the research protocol developed by the consultant.


3-6- Ethics
