HIV/AIDS mortality rate

HIV/AIDS has been the world’s health problem since the 1980s. It is imperative to deal with the virus since even in 2019-year 690 000 people died from it. Although the HIV/AIDS Mortality rate differs across the globe, prudent actions that help to deal with the rates worldwide are still ambiguous. The study aims to analyze how socioeconomic conditions affect the HIV/AIDS Mortality rate and introduce effective measures to deal with the virus and its transmission in the population. The study analyses socioeconomic data from such databases as Our World in Data, The United Nation Statistics, World Bank Open Data, Human Development Data, and International Monetary Fund Data. It covers 104 countries from 2000 to the 2017 year. It contains data that contribute to disease transmission, countries’ development level, and population well-being. The study results suggest that increasing the Antiretroviral therapy coverage, Government Expenditures on Education and Health is a sensible way to significantly decrease HIV/AIDS Mortality rate and its prevalence across the globe.
