Free from discrimination, violence and coercion: Upholding the right to bodily autonomy and informed consent for women and girls with disabilities

16 June 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Humanity & Inclusion (HI), the International Disability Alliance (IDA) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) invite you to a panel discussion as part of a side event to the 16th Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (COSP16).

Drawing on the lived experiences of women and girls with disabilities and healthcare providers, the panel will identify gaps in existing informed consent guidelines, and showcase examples of good practices to ensure the right to bodily autonomy is upheld for women and girls with disabilities when accessing SRHR services.

Live simultaneous translation will be provided in French, Spanish, International Sign & BSL. Live CART captioning will be provided in English & French.
