p. 816. Development, numbers, and politicslocked

  • Alan Whiteside


‘Development, numbers, and politics’ first considers the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set by the United Nations in 2000 and explains how achieving some of them was difficult due to high HIV prevalence in some countries. It goes on to discuss the changing viewpoints of the links between AIDS, conflict, and security, and why accurate data on HIV/AIDS are important for its management. There is limited potential political impact from AIDS, but what is important is ensuring treatment is available and affordable. Political and economic failure has widespread implications for the health system and is harder to manage.
