The purpose of the study is to examine the effects of HIV I AIDS among people living
with disability of Kampala District. The study had four specific objectives, which
included; i) determining the profile of respondents in terms of gender, age, educational
qualification and marital status; ii) to determine the level of barriers associated with
HIVIAIDS among people with disabilities; iii) to determine the level of preventive
strategies; and iv) to determine the relationship between the levels of barriers and
preventative strategies associated with HIV I AIDS among people with disabilities. The
researcher employed descriptive correlational survey design and the researcher
employed self administered questionnaire to collect data on effects of HIV I AIDS among
people living with disabilities. The findings indicated that most respondents (64%) were
females who are in vulnerable groups, aged between 30-39 years, majority were in
certificate (38%) and over 38% were married. The level of barriers was generally very
rarely with mean (1.5502) which indicated that most of respondents strongly disagreed.
The level of preventive strategies is generally rarely (overall mean=2.0373) they
disagreed. And also indicated a positive significant relationship between the level of
barriers and preventive strategies associated with HIV I AIDS among people with
disabilities (r=0.723, sig. =0.000) the more the government has tried to eliminate the
barriers, the people with disability will be able to go for voluntary counseling and
testing, able to disclose their status and get rid of stigma. From the findings and the
conclusions of the study, the researcher recommends there is need to senstive people
with disability to avoid stigma, despite the fact that there vulnerable and access the
HIVIAIDS services, there is need to uplift the educational level of people with disability
since most of them were certificate holders and in order to Increased acceptance and
uptake of HIV testing, sensitization should be thoroughly done more especially in communities.
