Population Impact and Policies 2001
Wall chart: English
On the more hopeful side, Governments have responded to the crisis by acknowledging that AIDS is a major concern, by establishing high-level coordinating bodies, and by taking measures to prevent the spread of AIDS. The global challenge of AIDS, to be addressed at a United Nations special session this summer is to intensify international action to fight HIV/AIDS and to mobilize the resources needed.
These are among the findings from the
wall chart, entitled “HIV/AIDS: Population Impact and Policies 2001,”
published by the United Nations Population Division.
The wall chart is a timely backdrop to the United Nations General
Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS that will convene in New York from
25-27 June2001. Included in the chart are data for each country on total
population, number and percentage of adults living with HIV/AIDS, number
of deaths from AIDS, number of AIDS orphans, life expectancy at birth
with and without AIDS, condom use, and health expenditure per capita.
Policy considerations include Government’s level of concern about AIDS,
measures taken to prevent the spread of AIDS and existence of a governmental
AIDS policy coordination body.
