Abstract

Background Evidence suggests that disability is more common among vulnerable populations which include women, elderly and children. And people with disabilities face widespread barriers in accessing services in relation to health, education, employment and transport. This study looks at the barriers women with disability face in accessing heath care services. The present study was undertaken in two states of India - Andhra Pradesh (Medak district) and Karnataka (Bidar). This is a descriptive study with a nested case control for comparison of access to health, education and employment status among those with and without disability The study was funded by CBM South Asia Regional Office (SARO) and was technically supported by CBM SARO Aim The main aim of the study was to look into whether women with disability have equitable access to health care in India and if there are disparities in access, the underlying causes and reasons for the same.
