Poverty Exacerbates Hiv/Aids Mortality
The relationship between socioeconomic factors and HIV/AIDS mortality is investigated. Regional and temporal variations in HIV/AIDS mortality rates were found to have some correlations with the socioeconomic factors. The variations in these socioeconomic variables are responsible the different survival durations by the people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). Based on the association between HIV/AIDS mortality rates and these socioeconomic factors, redistribution of resources can extend the lives of the PLWHA from the current 2-3 years to 10-15 years.
