African Drug Pricing Actions

More than 21 million people have died of AIDS since the start of the
epidemic 20 years ago. An estimated 36 million people are living with
HIV/AIDS, including more than 25 million people in sub-Saharan Africa.

  • The projections show that, without treatment to prevent AIDS, the number of AIDS deaths can be expected to grow, within the next 10 years, to more than double the number of deaths due to all other causes, resulting in 5 to 7 million cumulative AIDS deaths in South Africa by 2010..
  • AIDS accounted for about 25% of all deaths in the year 2000 and has become the single biggest cause of death..
  • 40 per cent of deaths of people between the ages of 15 and 49 last year were as a result of HIV/Aids infection..
  • About 20 per cent of all adult deaths were attributable to the disease.
