The socio-economic impact of the AIDS pandemic in developing countries, and in Africa in particular, is now a matter of great global concern. This is so because the magnitude of the potential disastrous effects of the disease has severe implications for the process of development and the modalities through which those development efforts are financed. The AIDS pandemic is imposing and will continue to impose, in the foreseeable future, a significant burden on the peoples, economies, and already inadequate health care systems of the African countries. It is a human and economic disaster of extraordinary dimensions which now requires that intervention programs be bolstered by political commitment and leadership as well as the additional resources required to implement them.
