This report reviews international, regional and national commitments relating to disability in 19 focus countries in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA). It examines the extent to which these countries have ratified key international and regional conventions and have domesticated these obligations. The report aims to identify the extent to which domestication of these commitments protects people with disabilities in the context of HIV in ESA.
