ABSTRACT 

Women with disabilities (WWDs) are three times more vulnerable to violations and exclusion from the enjoyment of their Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHRs) than their male counterparts with disabilities; how much more their counterparts without disabilities. SRHRs as well as disability rights have become a mainstream topic in International Human Rights circles; the rights having been codified in a number of international instruments. People with Disabilities (PWDs) in Nigeria are more often than not downtrodden by society in every facet of development. This paper appraises the protections under International law, exposes the barriers or impediments to the enjoyment of SRHRs by WWDs in Nigeria, and suggests solutions to enable the full enjoyment of SRHRs by WWDs in Nigeria.

Key Words: Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHRs), Disability, Disability rights, Human Rights, Barriers.
