HER VOICE: Augmenting vulnerable Kenyan girls and women with disability access to safe abortion services through a disability friendly mobile outreach model and home based support services

  Women Spaces Africa               Kenya

Women Spaces Africa develops and tests an outreach strategy that trains community health workers with disabilities in Nairobi to become peer educators. The peer educators will conduct community outreach and home visits to women and girls with disabilities and will engage the women and girls in training on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), specifically medical abortion. The training will also integrate economic empowerment skills, and group lending will be established to support income-generating activities. Furthermore, the women and girls with disabilities will design materials for a disability-friendly text hotline and braille educational communication materials on medical abortion and SRHR. These materials will be distributed to resource centers for people with disabilities, and health care providers will also be trained on disability-friendly medical abortion.
