Resumen: The majority of people living with or affected by HIV and AIDS are of working age. It is essential to understand and measure the economic and social impacts of the epidemic on the labour force. Bringing together health data, in particular HIV prevalence data, with labour force, economic and demographic data, the report sets out social and economic impacts on workers and their households for 2005, 2010 and 2015, as well as projections for 2020. The report provides snapshots at five-year intervals of HIV prevalence, deaths, and full and partial inability to work for the male and female labour force by country, for various groups of countries and globally. It also gives estimates for other key economic and social impacts (lost earnings, additional care work, child labour and impact on children s education).
