This book investigates various experiences of teaching sexual and reproductive health to adolescents with disabilities. Following the adoption of the UNCRPD, adolescents with disabilities still commonly suffer from widespread violation of their rights particularly concerning sexual and reproductive health - often being viewed as either asexual or hypersexual. Contemporary societies do not readily encourage the participation of these young people in conversations or decision making processes concerning their own sexual and reproductive health. This book delves into such complex issues, critically examining how global communities attempt to teach sexual and reproductive issues to adolescents with disabilities in the modern era. Tafadzwa Rugoho (PhD) is a lecturer at Great Zimbabwe University in the Department of Development Studies, and has authored more than twenty book chapters and several journal papers on disability issues. He is also a guest Lecturer at the University of Pretoria where he teaches Sexuality and Social Media. France Maphosa (PhD) is a Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Botswana. He has been awarded several research grants including the ORREA Senior Scholars Research Grant, CODESRIA Advanced Research Fellowship Grant and the CODESRIA National Working Group Research Grant
