This NAG Forum e-briefing on HIV/AIDS presents the key issues for the private sector arising from the spread of the disease in Malawi and provides some guidance for businesses to address this major problem.

Many Governments across Africa, including Malawi's, have prioritised poverty reduction as their main focus. Most countries are now driving their development policies through a Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) with pro-poor growth as one of the main focal points. Within the strategy, HIV/AIDS is recognised as one of the major threats to growth and poverty reduction.
