The literature out of Southern and Eastern Africa contributes to understanding of the HIV/AIDS-related disability. The research has extended to assess interventions and their policy implications in the African setting. This commentary explores the trend of research in HIV-associated disability in the region in the last decade. There is an increasing body of knowledge on the burden of HIV/AIDS-associated disability, and there is a need for the inclusion of disability management in HIV/AIDS care.
