The Growing Pain of HIV/AIDs and its Impacts on Economic Growth
The growing evidence about the impacts of HIV/AIDS on economies in developing countries has drawn a grim picture about a cycle where lower economic growth and increased poverty has fast-tracked the falls into deepening deprivations for many households and families.
And in regards to this problematique, many experts have come to conclusions and called for a dual approach toward this pandemic by matching increased investments in HIV prevention and care with adapted measures and strategies to combat poverty

In this piece (here), the reflection comes for the Caribbean where the analysis seizes on the relevance of the Universal Access Initiative, as a platform to carry-out planning and methodologies that take into account the various changes that have been moving the socio-economic landscapes in the region. A must read though.
