How many Deaf women in your country know their health rights? They have a right to protect their health–including their sexual and reproductive health. They also have a right to freedom from violence, including sexual violence.

In Zimbabwe, Deaf Women Included produced a video to teach them. Thus, the video explains their right to access sexual and reproductive health services. It also explains that they have a right to privacy. Deaf women also have a right to avoid unsafe sexual practices or forced marriage. 

Meanwhile, the video is in Zimbabwe Sign Language. It also has captions in English. We could not assess if it has voice over. No transcript is available. 

For more resources on deaf women’s health rights, see another Deaf Women Included video on menstrual health. Or learn about a project to teach Deaf women in Chile about HIV/AIDS.
