HIV/AIDS and work in a globalizing world - 2005

In this report, we explore these three trends – economic globalization, poverty, and human movement in relation to work – and their interrelations, appraise their impact on HIV/AIDS, and examine how HIV/AIDS in turn affects them.We will see in what ways the period of rapid economic globalization has coincided with the expansion of the HIV epidemic, and through what pathways HIV/AIDS exacerbates poverty, worsening the critical link between poverty and illness and threatening the prospects for global sustainable development.
