While a number of opportunities exist to effectively mainstream disability within our national health response, the constituency is more often than not missed with critical health intevernsions.

We are very excited to be part of the 1st ever Technical Working Group (TWG) which was formed in a bid to ensure effective mainstreaming of disability in COVID-19, SGBV, SRHR, HIV and AIDS initiatives.

The TWG was charged with the mandate to contribute towards the reduction of negative outcomes, morbidity and mortality attributed to COVID-19, SGBV, SRHR, HIV and AIDS among persons with disabilities in Zimbabwe.

An inception meeting was recently held in Harare for the TWG to unpack the Terms of References for members to get a better understanding of the rationale, purpose and responsibilities of the Technical Working Group and to generate commitment from stakeholders with regards to executing the mandate of the TWG.

National AIDS Council of Zimbabwe is the secretariat working closely with Ministry of Health and Child Care and Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare as co-chairs.

The TWG also agreed on the next steps to be taken pertaining COVID-19, SGBV, SRHR, HIV and AIDS to which one of the main ones is development of an operational plan.

The stories of how people with disabilities and their parents conquered the long-kept societal myths, name-calling, and negative perceptions on disabled persons after an intervention by two development partners. The Zimbabwe Council for the Welfare of Children(ZNCWC) & Zimbabwe Parents of Handicapped Children Association's (ZPHCA) joint intervention in a program entitled Child Participation & Disability Inclusion helped people with disabilities with training on their rights, motivation, and start-up finance for their parents/caregivers, and this has greatly improved their lives. The program also trained community leaders, teachers, and other community members on the rights of the disabled and how to better take care of them.

Tedious Mufute laments how he is treated at bus stops. How he spends hours wanting to board the bus, and with no one to assist with folding the chair and helping him access the transport system. This raises the point of the need for the transport system to be more inclusive, to have public transport system, that can be easily accessible by all people. Our buses should have ramps/lifts for wheelchair users.

Key Discussion points from Mutare Youth Sensitisation
1. It's hight time we push for sign language to be taught in all schools, as it is part of our National languages. Everyone in our community should at least have basic sign language skills.

2. Person's with Disabilities should be included in all develop processes from formulation to implementation. The inclusion should not be tokenism but our views should seriously be taken on board.

FODPZ Statement On 16 Days of activism Against Gender-Based Violence

The Federation of Organizations of Disabled People in Zimbabwe (FODPZ), stands with the world in commemorating 16 Days of Activism Against Gender based violence campaign. Indeed, “Orange The World, End Violence Against Women Now!”
FODPZ represents the interests and concerns of persons with disabilities in Zimbabwe. Yes, if persons with disabilities are not healthy and safe, they cannot care for themselves, support their families or contribute to their communities. We want to specifically stand with women and girls with disabilities as they are more vulnerable and marginalized. According to UN Women, around one in five women has some form of disability. In most cases, persons with disabilities are treated as subhuman and because of that, they often face a heightened risk of domestic and sexual violence. Unfortunately, too many existing programmes meant to prevent gender-based violence do not take into account the unique dangers and challenges faced by women with disabilities. Without specific attention and solutions, these women have been left behind and at risk. This has to change.
According to UN women, Women with disabilities around the world experience much higher levels of physical, sexual, and psychological violence, for longer periods of time and with worse physical and mental outcome as a consequence of violence than women without disabilities. The main factors for the additional vulnerability of women and girls with disabilities are:
Patriarchal attitudes: Attitudes towards women in patriarchal societies combined with vulnerabilities related to the impairment itself.
Powerlessness: The perceived powerlessness of women and girls with disabilities who are less able to defend themselves or seek support because of their isolation e.g. they may be hidden away, the nature of impairment leaves them isolated, or they may not recognise that what is happening is unacceptable and not their fault.
Poverty: There is a strong bidirectional link between poverty and disability. It is often said that disability is 'both a cause and consequence of poverty' and poverty and disability 'reinforce each other, contributing to increased vulnerability and exclusion'. Poverty increases the likelihood of disability.
Access to services: Their inability to access legal protection and redress because services are not accessible and there is lack of awareness of the issues that women and girls with disabilities face in regards to their vulnerability.
The introduction of mandatory lockdowns to curb covid 19 saw a rise in Gender based violence for persons with disabilities with adverse effects on women. Due to lack of information, some persons with disabilities particularly those with hearing impairment found themselves in town during the lockdowns and found themselves stranded or having to answer to security forces with little success. We implore Government and stakeholders to ensure that when information on covid 19 and lockdowns is shared, please ensure that persons with different disabilities including women also have access to that information to avoid what they faced in the past lockdowns. Development agencies, power holders and service providers need to build into their programmes the right protection for women with disabilities. It will require sustained global focus, momentum and action.
We applaud the efforts made by the government of Zimbabwe thus far where they have considered recruiting directors of Gender, Inclusivity and Wellness in all the 21 Ministries. This will go a long way
As FODPZ, we stand with the Ministry of Women Affairs, Community Small and Medium Enterprise Development in saying “Orange the world: End violence against women now!
It does not matter that we do not have a voice to cry out for help,
It does not matter that we cannot see to identify GBV perpetrators,
It does not matter that we are not strong enough to defend ourselves, BUT DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE!
“No to child marriages”.
