Nowadays HIV/AIDS and malaria are no longer epidemiological phenomena only. These epidemics are obstacles for human and economic development. This books estimates the impact on economic growth, the fiscal implications of comprehensive public prevention and treatment initiatives and the private costs for persons and families living with the disease. This book also provides meaningful insights towards the understanding on the determinants, effects and best-practice interventions related to these epidemics. Our critical question is how information interrelates with socioeconomic factors to affect the incidence, transmission and fight against HIV/AIDS and malaria.
