This issue brief considers the links between HIV and disability - that people with disabilities are among the key populations at high risk to exposure to HIV, and that people living with HIV may develop impairments and disabilities as a result of the disease. It anticipates an increased demand for rehabilitation services in Eastern and Southern Africa, given the improved access to HIV treatments and high prevalence of people living with HIV in the region, and warns that many in areas services are already stretched and resource-poor, so may struggle to cope with greater demand. The brief focuses on: issues regarding the definition of disability; implications for rehabilitation services; and considerations for disability grants
