ABSTRACT

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.
