Adolescence with disabilities are one of Indonesia’s human resources whose quality must be improved to make them play the role as the subjects in health development. The result of the National Socio-Economic Survey in 2012 shows that there are 2.45% of Indonesian people are disabilities. According to the Social Protection Program (PPLS) in 2012, the number of people with disabilities is 3,838,985. This research was a qualitative research with case study design carried out in June - July 2018. The total informants were 27 people coming from different stakeholders related to the reproductive health education for young people with mental retardation. The results of this study show that not all of the relevant stakeholders formulate the policies regarding the reproductive health education for young people with mental retardation. It is only the Ministry of Education and Culture that has formulated a specific policy in the form of reproductive health guidelines for adolescence with intellectual disability. The implementation of these policies is not optimal and is expected to be included in the special education curriculum.
