Research Study Report on the Quality of Life of Women with Disabilities in Vojvodina


Research Study on the Qual­i­ty of Life of Women with Dis­abil­i­ties in Vojvo­d­i­na was con­duct­ed in 2011 in coop­er­a­tion with the Research and Edu­ca­tion cen­ter TIM and orga­ni­za­tions of per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties.

The aim of the study was to research obsta­cles women with dis­abil­i­ties are fac­ing in their envi­ron­ment. It was orga­nized so that it cov­ered cur­rent fields of oper­a­tion of …IZ KRUGAVOJVODINA orga­ni­za­tions, such as eco­nom­ic empow­er­ment, repro­duc­tive health and pro­tec­tion from vio­lence and dis­crim­i­na­tion.

Women expe­ri­enc­ing dis­abil­i­ty often encounter social, phys­i­cal, cul­tur­al and eco­nom­ic bar­ri­ers pre­vent­ing them from obtain­ing appro­pri­ate health­care ser­vices, edu­ca­tion and employ­ment.

The long-term aim of this research was to insti­gate new projects and increase the num­ber of ini­tia­tives con­tribut­ing to improve­ment of the qual­i­ty of life of women with dis­abil­i­ties.

Imple­men­ta­tion of the research and pub­li­ca­tion of its find­ings was sup­port­ed by the Mama Cash Dutch women’s foun­da­tion.
