HIV AIDS

In response to a comment by an Anon regarding the extent of the HIV AIDS epidemics in the world and whether the resulting death rate is large enogh to negate the growth in world population I have looked up the following data for the year 2005:

Total number of people living with HIA AIDS 40.2 Million

Total estimated deaths from HIV AIDS 3.1 Million

Total number of people living with HIV AIDS
in sub-saharan Africa 26.0 Million people


Total deaths from HIV AIDS since 1961 12.0 Million


Note the very high concentration of HIV AIDS in sub- saharan Africa.

The main Problem from the beginning of the AIDS epidemic was the encroachment upon certain foreign ecosystems, namely rainforests in central or South America were man had no business being in the first place. To get back to the statistics you gave us I believe that this will never stop unless a cure is found but considering how we capitalize off of mass infections of incurable diseases I think that it will be a very long time before we see the death toll slowly lurch to a halt. Even with the new HAART antiviral medication we are put in a situation were they are kept alive for many years but can still infect others around them also most people with HIV/AIDS do not know they have it in the first place which increases the chance of the individual infecting others. Also thousands of years of human behavior cannot just be just shut off like a generic light switch it has to be tackled on a global scale but the catch twenty-two about this argument is that even if we try to educate them on safe sex most cultures will refuse for one reason or another. In closing I believe that the only way this disease will be beaten is through a global effort by professionals from all over the world who can produce a cure not for the profit but for the sake of humanity. One economic solution to this is by creating new government regulation on the cost of treatments, by making the treatments cost a very low amount for the daily consumer and then making cures very high then we would in turn reverse the greed cycle in the populations favor. Even if some cannot afford the cure when it is created then they can still have the treatment until some sort of financial aid for them arrives.

I clicked on post too soon in my comment so here is the end of it that answers the question.

The statistics which are given will not help to stop the over population problem because of new treatments which I have explained above but we can cure these people and instill a sense of awareness from the cure. After which I can only hope we can put together their broken government and finally create a bright continent out of a dark one.

I think the catholick church has a responsibility to promote the use of condoms around the world. The people of Africa will not use any protection until the church ok's it. Therefore the hiv aids crisis will continue to grow. It may even get so big, that population growth is affected by it, and that is definantly not the way to solve overpopulation.

I used the definition from the eco 310 book.

Health care should be free for everyone, that's the bottom line. In America people living with HIV/AIDS have access to this medication but the price is outrageous. In Africa the people carrying this disease are not as lucky but instead of investing our money in the country to help the suffering the US spends all our money on war. If we were not investing 120 billion a year on war and put it into HIV/AIDS research I'm sure a cure would be found alot sooner and every citizen of the world could have free medication.
