In Zimbabwe, Association for Disabled People insists for condom description to be done in Braille to assist the blind people to have “safe sex”.
In addition, activist’s voices raised to warn that blind people are going to be exterminated since many of them are buying expired condoms.
“We will surely be exterminated by the Aids pandemic. The notion that people with visual impairments do not engage in sexual activities hence should be left out of programmes on HIV/AIDS should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves,” says one of them to Sunday News.
“We are also sexually active or even more active than able-bodied people and we need the same protection from the Aids scourge.”
The Braille is a language that used by blind people to read and write. Braille founded by a blind person Louis Braille in 1821.
To make matters worse, some people in Zimbabwe think that if you are intimate with a person with disabilities, you will be cured from HIV/AIDS.
