About Course

The Government of Kenya recognizes the Disability agenda as one of the cross-cutting developing issues to be mainstreamed into sectoral and institutional frameworks for programming. Disability means any physical, sensory, mental, or other impairment including visual, hearing, learning and physical incapability, which impacts adversely on social, economic or environmental participation (PWD Act 2003 and Constitution 2010). This is anchored in the 2010 constitution that recognizes the fundamental Human Rights of every citizen as stated in the Bill of Rights. This resonates with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability, which stipulates that disability issues should be addressed from a rights-based perspective. In line with the 2010 Constitution, the National AIDS Control Council (NACC) has developed the Disability Mainstreaming Guideliness to guide in internal and external mainstreaming. Disability Mainstreaming is about building Disability aspects in already existing Frameworks, Policies and Structures.

The need to address gaps existing in programme interventions aimed at enhancing mainstreaming disability in HIV and AIDS interventions forms the basis for developing these guideliness. The guidelines seek to guide in the mainstreaming disability agenda in the core functions of the NACC departments for effective service delivery to PWD in the National HIV and AIDS response. persons with disabilities (PWDs) are a distinct group whose needs, capacities and aspirations require special attention. Most often, they are left behind when it comes to programming. The NACCs Disability mainstreaming Committee guidelines on disability mainstreaming at NACC for both internal and external customers towards the achievement of the national HIV response.
