Contextual factors around the sexual abuse of people with disabilities in East Africa

Advantage Africa


The goal of this literary review is to report on existing knowledge about applied research on the thematic of the sexual abuse of persons with disabilities in East Africa. It resulted in the selection of 39 relevant research papers which were each categorised using a set of predetermined criteria. Of these research papers 15 were selected as being particularly relevant or interesting because of their potential for being applied with practical effect, especially with persons with disabilities and their own organisations.


This literary review was conducted as part of the applied research “An assessment of the social, cultural and institutional factors that contribute to the sexual abuse of persons with disabilities in East Africa” lead by Advantage Africa, and funded by FIRAH’s call for projects in 2012. The fulfilment of this work was entrusted to Mary Ann Waddell, independent researcher formally at the University College of London.
