A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world, but has not affected all of us equally. In their reporting about the impact of the pandemic, news outlets often leave out the effects of COVID-19 on people with disabilities. Women with disabilities are confronting the highest barriers to health and well-being. 

Hesperian’s inclusive approach to women’s health has created resources specifically for women with disabilities. A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities is a groundbreaking guide that shows how women with disabilities can overcome barriers to poor health and advocate for better health care. It was developed with and is used by health professionals, caregivers, and women’s health and disability groups around the world.
