Abstract:Cross-sectional estimates of 34 countries for the year 2003 were used to examine the effect of various socioeconomic (including cultural) and epidemiological factors contribution to the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa, and to see if these factors have a differential impact on women and men. The empirical model consisted of multiple regressions in which HIV/AIDS prevalence rates as dependent variables were regressed on a number of determinants as independent variables. Of the 11 independent variables used to measure the various determinants of HIV/AIDS prevalence rates, GDP per capita, Human Poverty Index, Access to information, Percentage of Muslim population, Prevalence of male circumcision and Literacy rates were significant predictors to the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the 34 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa. These findings are important as they identify the links between HIV/AIDS and socioeconomic as well as epidemiological factors, and highlight the direction of health policy in Sub-Saharan Africa.
