  • Summary:
  • People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) are particularly vulnerable to the health impacts of inadequate water and sanitation; in seeking to protect themselves from infection and cope with symptoms, their needs for clean water and sanitation increase. In Addis Ababa, the poor generally have inadequate water and sanitation facilities, and, due to discrimination and sickness, PLWHA often have even more limited access than others. WaterAid Ethiopia researches the needs of PLWHA in water and sanitation, constraints on meeting these needs, and ideas for addressing them through water and sanitation programming by NGOs and government in Ethiopia.
