HRC55: Annual High-level Mainstreaming Panel

This oral statement was submitted to the 55th Session of the Human Rights Council (HRC55) Annual High-level Mainstreaming Panel. Watch the video statement here.

This is Ashrafun Nahar and I am making this statement on behalf of Women with Disability Development Foundation and the Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW).

To ensure strengthened implementation of the United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy, as organizations working with women with disabilities, we recommend:

  • Member States to monitor the full implementation of Article 6 and 4 of the UNCRPD[1] to ensure that women with disabilities do not face discrimination and violence at any decision-making spaces.
  • Ensure that women with disabilities have opportunities for meaningful participation and lead decision-making and strategic planning spaces around their sexual and reproductive health and rights
  • Engage with women with disabilities organizations, so that decisions are informed with lived experiences
  • Ensure that disaggregated data, on disabilities and gender, are collected, recorded and used for decision-making purposes around their sexual and reproductive health needs.
  • Ensure that communications in intergovernmental and consultative processes have reasonable accommodations and are fully accessible to women with all kinds of disabilities.
  • Ensure key people in the consultative and intergovernmental processes at all levels are trained, sensitised around the gender, disabilities, inclusive and intersectional processes to ensure women with disabilities have access to an enabling non judgemental environment.

Thank you.
