January 20 2012 at 11:23
The UNAIDS, WHO and OHCHR Policy Brief on Disability and HIV (2009) recognises the interrelations between HIV and disability, and emphasises that this issue has not received sufficient attention . It presses the point that people with disabilities are one of the key populations at higher risk of exposure to HIV. It also emphasises that people living with HIV may develop impairments and disabilities as a result of the disease and side effects of the treatments.
