20060309 Resource Manual for Disability HIV-AIDS Training




This manual is a guide for anybody who wants to provide education and
information on HIV/AIDS and Disability. But it is not made just for people with
disabilities, rather it is meant for anyone who wants to learn more about these
issues and share their new awareness with others.
Hearing people with disabilities talk about sexuality and HIV/AIDS does not
happen often. But the truth is that HIV/AIDS does affect all of us whether we are
disabled or not. Many of our brothers and sisters with disabilities (and without) are
dying because of AIDS-related illnesses and our silence will only make things
worse. It takes courage to speak out about HIV/AIDS but with energy and a sense
of humour we can make a huge difference in peoples lives. In fact, it is only by
getting educated, educating others and speaking out that lives can be saved and
enriched. We hope that this manual will give you the information, inspiration and
ideas that you need to pursue this struggle.
