AIDS in Africa country by country : Africa development forum 2000, HIV/AIDS epidemiology, economic impact, national response to the epidemic, selected socioeconomic indicators
As a resource for the delegates at this African Development Forum 2000 devoted to the topic of HIV/AIDS, UNAIDS is pleased to provide the following country profiles. Together, the profiles help to paint a picture of the current state of the HIV epidemic in Africa, its impact on the social and economic fabric, and the response thus far of the African nations to the unprecedented crisis caused by HIV/AIDS. For the selected indicators used, they are as complete a compilation as possible, given the available data from the African countries and from UNAIDS and WHO sources. Additional information on AIDS in Africa is available from the UNAIDS Web site (www.unaids.org) and other sources, including the bibliographical references contained in this document.
