      West and Central Africa is home to million people living with HIV, of whom , are children.1 HIV prevalence among adults is %, which is relatively low when compared to East and Southern is wide variation between countries, ranging from % in Mauritania to % in Equatorial Guinea.2 In , 68% of people living with HIV were aware of their status. The epidemic continues to be a global threat although sub-Saharan African countries are particularly affected, having about 70% of the population of PLWHA [1] [2][3][4].

      In many ways, African-Americans have been hit harder by HIV than any other racial or ethnic group in the United States. A larger portion of this community gets AIDS diagnoses and has HIV-related. virus, making this the third largest infected population worldwide after South Africa and India, and an estimated , people had died of AIDS (UNAIDS ). The complexity of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the high demands successful programs make on planners, administrators and people at risk constitute a tremendous challenge for Ethiopia.

        South Africa is probably the most studied country with regard to the macroeconomic impact of HIV/AIDS. Table 1 summarizes the studies done in and The ‘with AIDS’ scenario in each case assumed lower levels of production and a smaller labour force, direct and indirect costs to the business sector, higher government expenditure (particularly on health and social welfare) and. The impact of HIV/AIDS on the demography of Botswana is staggering. 13 Population size with and without AIDS, South Africa, & Source: UN Population Division. 0 Males Females 0.

The demographic impact of AIDS is even more dramatic when focussing only on the hardest hit countries. For example: The average life expectancy at birth in the nine countries with an adult HIV prevalence of 10 per cent or more is projected to reach 48 years in whereas it would have reached 58 years in the absence of AIDS.

The Impact of HIV/AIDS Epidemic on the Population Age Structure of Zimbabwe. VIII. IMPACT ON ECONOMIC GROWTH A.

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE IMPACT OF HIV/AIDS ON ECONOMIC GROWTH The impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the economy has been a concern since the beginning of. As Africa faces the potential for a demographic dividend, certain facts about Africa’s population offer cause for both excitement and concern.

The population of sub-Sahara Africa has grown from million to million people from That’s about 11 million people a year for the past 60 years or approximately million people in 60 years. In the countries of sub-Saharan Africa most affected, AIDS has raised death rates and lowered life expectancy among adults between the ages of 20 and 49 by about twenty years.

Furthermore, the life expectancy in many parts of Africa is declining, largely as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic with life-expectancy in some countries reaching as low as thirty-four years.

Taken together with the impact of HIV on the age-specific sex ratio, which after 40 years of an epidemic results in two-thirds of the population age 50 and older being female, the final result is that fully one-fifth of the total population over 50 years of age will potentially be.

Table 1 shows HIV prevalence and mortality rates per 1, person years (PY) by sex, socioeconomic stratum, and HIV-infection status for – [see expanded version in supporting information (SI) Table 5].HIV prevalence in adults fell from 23% to 18% over an average 5.

Half the AIDS victims in the world are in East and Southern Africa, where adult HIV sero‐prevalence was percent by the end of and over 25 percent in two countries of Southern Africa.

HIV/AIDS infection is not the result of ignorance, as nearly everyone has sufficient knowledge about AIDS and how it is transmitted. In each country the details of the epidemic vary, having its own distinct origin, geographic patterns of dispersion and particular population subgroups affected.

At present, reliable comprehensive statistics for HIV/AIDS infections do not exist; however, those that do exist are alarming. Abstract. Despite growing understanding of the dynamics of HIV/AIDS in South Africa, and the emergence of increasingly reliable models of the likely spread of the disease in the country, analysis of the economic and social impact of the epidemic has remained limited and superficial.

The potential expansion of the HIV epidemic and its cultural impact in sub-Saharan Africa are vast. Projections under conservative assumptions suggest that the toll of AIDS will reach five million annual deaths byalthough the net African population will continue to increase significantly.

AIDS, 8 (12), – CrossRef Google Scholar   The HIV/AIDS pandemic has impacted the populations of many African countries. Ten countries in Africa with recent population projections were selected for Figures 1 and 2.

These countries have suffered the combined loss of more than million people. The scales of the epidemics vary, with some countries more heavily impacted than others. Unlike many African countries, where government AIDS programs have been desultory, the Botswanan government is at war against the virus.

Anti-AIDS banners are everywhere, and news about the epidemic appears daily in newspapers and on the radio and TV.

Free condoms are available in remote clinics, bars, and shops. Global action to combat HIV/AIDS has had an immense impact in the African Region.
