The sociocultural and economic context of HIV / AIDS in Papua New Guinea. Koczberski G. PIP: Since HIV/AIDS was first recorded in Papua New Guinea in , the number of cases has grown considerably.

Overview of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the health workforce This paper addresses one of the key global health challenges today, especially in the poorest countries: the influence of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the health workforce. First, we provide an overview of the impact of HIV/AIDS on health systems and how this influences demand and supply.   HIV/AIDS was the poster child of issues confronting Papua New Guinea ten years ago. But since then it's faded somewhat from public discourse, as other problems like corruption took precedence, and other health crises such as TB surged back. However, HIV takes no heed of fashion and during this time prevalence of the virus in PNG has been climbing.

The wide range of development in the region also plays an important role. The prevalence is estimated at between % and %, with betw and , adults and children currently infected with HIV. Papua New Guinea has one of the most serious AIDS epidemics in the region. The HIV/AIDS Data Hub for the Asia-Pacific works to provide decision-makers and experts with high quality, accessible and up-to-date data on HIV in the region.
