Dipatlisiso Tsa HIV Le Aids

Go itebaganya le botlhokwa ba dipatisiso tsa HIV le AIDS le mekgwa ya yone go ka dira melawana, ditshwetso le mananeo a a maleba, lefatshe la Botswana le dira dipatlisiso mo go bomme ba ba itsholofetseng fa gare ga dingwaga tsa 15-49. Tshimologong ya dipatlisiso tse ka ngwaga wa 1992 , kelelelo e ne e le mo go phutheng tsotlhe tse di maleba le mokgwa wa bolwetsi go itebaganya le go kgobokanya letlotlo le tlhabololo mananeo. Mme fa bolwetse bo gola, go bonagala go tlhokega go sekaseka maele go akaretsa mekgwa ya boitshwaro tebang le segajaja. dipatlisiso tse dingwe tsa simolola ka ngwaga wa 2001.HIV mo go bo mme ba ba itsholofetseng ba dingwaga tsa15-49 e supile go tlhoka go gola jaaka go supiwa mo figure 1. Go tswa ka 2002 mokgwa wa dipatlisiso wa ANC HIV wa gola ka dipalo,kanamo ya lehatshe le metse selegae le toropo mo boemeding. Se se thusa go ipaakanya go tlhabantsha bolwetsi.

The Demographic Impact on HIV/AIDS in Botswana

This report is one of the deliverables in a tender awarded to the Centre for Actuarial Research (CARe) at the University of Cape Town by the National AIDS Coordinating Agency (NACA) and the United Nations Development Programme, Botswana, to investigate the impact of HIV/AIDS on the population of Botswana.

The Economic Impact of HIV/AIDS in Botswana

Until very recently HIV prevalence seems to have been following a steady upward trend, although there is now some evidence of stabilisation – and even reversal - of prevalence rates.

Prevalence rates amongst specific sub-groups of the adult population are higher, with sentinel surveys of pregnant women in Botswana showing rates of 40-50 percent in some age cohorts.  The impact of such high HIV prevalence rates is widespread. For many of those infected, HIV infection results in death within a few years, although the gradual roll-out of medical treatment for the disease has enabled it to be transformed into a manageable chronic condition.

Estimated HIV and AIDS Trends and Implications

This report describes the use of the sentinel surveillance and the BAIS II data to estimate national prevalence in Botswana today and the implications of that estimate for other indicators of interest, such as the number of people infected, the annual number of new infections and the number of people  in need of ART. These estimates are based on the entire history of HIV surveillance among women attending antenatal clinics (to establish the trends) and the results of the national survey, BAIS II, (to set the level in 2004). These data have been used in two computer models EPP and Spectrum.
