“This article systematically reviews the evidence on the prevalence and risk of disabilities among children and adults living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. The article concludes that HIV is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa and the evidence suggests that it is linked to disabilities, affecting a range of body structures and functions. More research is needed to better understand the implications of HIV-related disability for individuals and their families as well as those working in the fields of disability and HIV so that appropriate interventions can be developed”
