20080901 HIV/AIDS and Disability

There is a growing movement to address the need for increased collaboration in programming between
those who advocate for the rights of people with disabilities (PWDs) and those involved in HIV education, prevention, care and treatment.

While many organizations advocating for the rights of PWDs are actively implementing HIV programming in their curriculum, there is an urgent need for existing HIV organizations to follow suit and modify their programming to better integrate the needs of people living with disabilities.
