HIV and disability case study

Describes the long term health and rehabilitation needs of people with HIV and disabilities and how these can be met

Our final activity this week introduces links among longer term health conditions and disability. This HIV and disability case study is presented by Muriel Mac-Seing, a member of IDDC’s HIV and AIDS and Disability task group and a Public Health doctorate student at the University of Montreal. She discusses HIV and disability looking at the links between longer term health conditions and disability.

In this video, she discusses the links between HIV and disability, and highlights that disease can lead to impairments, activity limitations and reduced social participation. She then presents two international good practice case studies which have addressed disability, including rehabilitation, in the context of HIV and AIDS to remove barriers and improve access to services.
