A two-day national forum on disability and HIV⁄Aids ended yesterday with a call to  achieve zero new infection, zero death and zero stigma by 2015.

Held under the theme, “ Remove the barriers and achieve zero new HIV infections by 2015: PLWDs included”, the forum which drew 108 people from various domains, aimed at exploring how HIV⁄Aids interventions can be adjusted to the  specific needs of PLWDs.

 

“Disability is a cross cutting issue; therefore there is a crucial need to consider all aspects of disability and consider clinical, socio-economic approaches,” said Dr Sabin Nsanzimana, the Coordinator of HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections Care and Treatment Department at Rwanda Biomedical Centre.
