There is still no cure for HIV/AIDS. But new drug treatments are helping people to live longer and with a better quality of life.
However, for many people living with HIV, periods of good health are often interrupted by periods of illness or disability. Rehabilitation can make a difference – by helping people with HIV to remain healthy, participate in the workforce and be active in their homes and communities.
Realize brings together the traditionally separate worlds of HIV, disability, and rehabilitation.
Through leadership in research, education, and cross-sector partnerships, Realize is working to address the rehabilitation needs of people living with HIV – and changing the future of HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support.
