Disability & special needs

STF promotes Sexual Reproductive Health Rights for young people with disability. By addressing the SRH of young people with disability STF aims to improving the wellbeing of this often underserved group of young people. Disability increases vulnerability to several; risks including HIV particularly for women with disability.

Girls and women with disability are less likely to find partners and likely to have multiple sexual partners and experience harassment, rape, violence or abusive relationships. STF’s support in addressing this includes strengthening access to both information and services on SRH.

Young people with disability are reached through peer education, school visits and through their teachers and caregivers.
