African Sexuality, Disability and Rights Coalition

African Sexuality, Disability and Rights Coalition advocates for the rights of people with disabilities to control their own sexuality and reproductive lives – a perspective that is often absent in mainstream sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and disability rights activism. The coalition addresses this gap by engaging with African disability rights and sexuality rights movements, encouraging broader recognition of how issues of disability, gender and sexual rights intersect. The coalition addresses gender-based violence while also advocating for the recognition of positive sexual rights, such as the right to sexual identity and to sexual pleasure for people with disabilities.
