Research Finds Health Delivery Services "Deteriorated" in African Countries Hard Hit By AIDS

July 6, 2009

IRIN examines new research from Princeton University's National Bureau of Economic Research, which finds that the "HIV/AIDS pandemic has dealt a body blow to the delivery of health care services in countries hard hit by the disease." The research compares data from national Demographic and Health Surveys in 14 sub-Saharan African countries. "The authors suggest that non-HIV health services deteriorated in high-prevalence regions because the pandemic reduced the number of trained health personnel, and shifted health budgets and other resources towards caring for HIV patients," IRIN writes (7/1).
