Does HIV/AIDS Affect work.
Some how it does but not so much depending with the person affected handles it, however, it affects one the people who have not accepted that HIV/AIDS is just like an other disease someone can have. In our society AIDS affected people are discriminated and they feel uncomfortable to be associated with others and this leads to early deaths. Moreover, just as an illness affects the ability of an individual HIV/AIDS affects the ability to fully participate in a number of work related activities. My comments does not mean we should not work with people who are HIV/AIDS infected but we should support them and work with them and provide the needed care and Support. Remember if You are Not Infected than you are Affected.
To a large extent it can affect work because the infected persons are kept away from work due to failed health whilst the affected (that family members /friends) are kept away from work tending to the sick. This is most felt on those that are in informal employment as the financial resources are drained. However, this does not mean that the infected persons cannot work as rightly said by Cxluchembe.
