HIV / AIDS
As a vulnerable population, individuals with HIV/AIDS are more prone to disease and lost income when humanitarian sectors do not account for environmental issues in WASH, health or agriculture, for example. Consequently, individuals with HIV/AIDS who previously managed natural resources or contributed to agriculture are often absent in the planning and response programs due to their illness.
