Of the estimated million [confidence bounds: million] people living with HIV worldwide in , million [ million] were children aged Each day in , approximately children became infected with HIV and approximately children died from AIDS related causes, mostly because of inadequate access to HIV prevention, care and treatment services. Poverty, a Leading Promoter of HIV and AIDS Poverty is clearly a factor in the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS. The struggle to survive everyday overshadows attention and concern about a virus that does not demonstrate any immediate harm. HIV/AIDS is a distant threat until it has a visible presence manifested by illness and death.

Page A-1 - Although it has been dear for a number of years that mortality estimates and projections for many countries would have to be revised because of AIDS mortality, the lack of accurate empirical data on AIDS deaths, the paucity of data on HIV infection among the general population, and the absence of tools to project the impact of AIDS epidemics into the future have all hampered these. of Namibia. HIV and AIDS is one of the factors that impact on the ability of the Public Sector to deliver services. An HIV and AIDS impact assessment has been conducted within the Public Service workforce, including a demographic impact analysis. This analysis provides estimates of HIV prevalence and incidence among.

HIV projections were generated for countries from the most recent country-produced HIV estimates using the AIDS Impact Model (AIM) in Spectrum software (Avenir Health, Glastonbury, CT, USA). 21 countries with a Spectrum file and no historical HIV incidence data available (mostly in the Middle East, North Africa and Western Europe) were excluded from the Cited by: 2.

Characteristics of the HIV epidemic Kenya and Uganda. 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.

Comparing projections that rely on survey-based HIV estimates suggests that, in severely affected countries, the reduction in population due to AIDS may be only 50 to 75 percent of what the agency projections show and that life expectancy may be reduced, at the maximum, by a third to two-thirds of what agency projections show.

An infection with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).

AIDS results in a gradual and persistent decline and failure of the immune system, resulting in heightened risk of life-threatening infection and cancers. In the majority of cases, HIV is a sexually-transmitted infection.

This compares to the estimates by the population of Botswana and Namibia is expected to be 20 percent lower that it would have been in the absence of AIDS. The results indicate. HIV/AIDS affects economic growth by reducing the availability of human capital. Without proper prevention, nutrition, health care and medicine that is available in developing countries, large numbers of people are falling victim to AIDS.

People living with HIV/AIDS will not only be unable to work, but will also require significant medical care.
