This is the report of a study to investigate the reproductive health and HIV/AIDS of disabled people, and their beliefs, perceptions and reproductive health practices. It also identifies the constraints faced by disabled people in seeking reproductive health services and suggests strategies through which reproductive health delivery for disabled people could be improved. The report calls for: the design and implementation of reproductive health interventions which are specifically tailored to the needs of disabled people; an improvement in the poverty situation of disabled people; the provision of information, education and communication on reproductive health and HIV/AIDS; and awareness-raising in communities about the plight of disabled people in order to curb stigma and discrimination
