The VDI team led by the Executive Director, Barr. Catherine Edeh paid a courtesy visit to NAPTIP today to discuss areas in which VDI and NAPTIP can collaborate to achieve disability inclusion in Nigeria.

Areas of collaboration discussed include, Sexual and Reproductive Health rights of women with disabilities, awareness raising and sensitization on Gender-Based Violence against women and girls with disabilities, child trafficking and VAPP Laws in special schools, sensitization on harassment and sexual exploitation of girls with disabilities amongst other things.
The ED in her opening remarks appreciated the Deputy Director of NAPTIP for receiving the team.
