Dear Family Planning Champion,
People living with disabilities are an important population to reach with sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR). A new ARROW editorial argues that women with disabilities in particular are more likely to experience sexual or gender-based violence (SGBV) due to structural violence and vulnerability. The piece focuses on the Asia-Pacific region and makes a case for the championing of SRHR and prioritization of women with disabilities for SGBV care.

ARROW, the Asian-Pacific Resource & Research Centre for Women, took an intersectional approach to this piece, making an important contribution to the growing literature on sexuality and SRHR for women and girls with disabilities. The volume includes pieces from different authors, including interviews with rights activists from the region Nepal on their recommendations and experiences.
