The World Health Organization estimates that 10 per cent of the population in poor countries is disabled. Disabled people have and want sexual lives – and, because of their disabilities, they may also be sexually abused and exploited. In this lecture Dr Sam Tororei from the Nairobi based Regional AIDS Training Network (RATN) presents findings from the most recent research. He talks about how in Kenya steps are being taken to protect disabled people from sexual abuse while encouraging them to lead full sexual lives, this in an environment where HIV infection is an ever present threat. The lecture is of particular interest to those interested in health, disability, HIV/AIDS, Kenya, gender and sexuality issues.
