Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo


Considering the situation of women living with disabilities in the Great lakes sub-region in Africa, and the need to raise awareness about the issue of violence and HIV and AIDS in the post-war Rwanda, Burundi and DRCongo, the EDAN/Central Africa - through IMAN'ENDA Ministries - organized this consultation which is expected to articulate the problems pertaining to HIV and AIDS and violence against women living with disabilities, as well as to give the impetus for social transformation with regard to the way that the society perceives people living with disability in the sub region.
