It is estimated that 60 million people have been infected with HIV since the disease was first identified in the 1980s. UNAID S believe that about 25 million of these have died from AIDS. In 2010, two thirds of the world’s cases of HIV and deaths from AID S occurred in countries in sub-Saharan Africa, while in the USA, Europe and Australia drug treatments now enable those infected with HIV to live with the disease for many decades. This book explores the epidemiology of HIV/ AIDS, and some of the development issues that arise from this, and shows how economic development and welfare of populations has been affected by the disease.

Hazel Barrett is Professor of Development Geography and Associate Dean for Applied Research at Coventry University and an expert in development issues in sub-Saharan Africa.

Bob Digby has taught in schools and universities for over 35 years.
