Epidemiologic programming to present transfusion-related HIV infection. Journal of Health Management, 2(2), 257–62. 2 million people are living with HIV/AIDS in Asia and the Pacific with almost 1 million new infections estimated to have occurred in 2002 (UNAIDS 2003). With national prevalence rates above 1 per cent, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand are the worst affected countries in the region. 6 per cent of the adult population (Kingdom of Cambodia 2003). Other countries are experiencing serious, localised epidemics among vulnerable populations.

A study in Maharashtra state in India suggests that households affected by an HIV/AIDS-related death had been forced to sell their means of production to cover for the economic burden of high treatment and other costs of HIV/AIDS. Compared to households not affected by HIV/ AIDS, fewer of the HIV/AIDS death households owned means of production, land and animals (Verma et al. 2002). It is possible that the lack of assets in HIV-affected households mainly is an indication of the level of poverty, which could have been present before HIV/AIDS became part of the equation.

In addition, as the impact on households grows more severe, market demand for products and services can shrink (Asian Business Coalition on HIV/ AIDS 2002; Global Business Council on HIV/AIDS 2001, 2002; ILO 2001; UNAIDS et al. 2000). Companies in Asia are beginning to feel the impact of the epidemic. A survey of a small company in Thailand estimated that AIDS was resulting in a loss of US$ 80,000 annually (UNAIDS 1998). This estimate may, however, be a little high for a company in Thailand since it equals calculated costs of HIV/AIDS to larger companies in some of the worst affected countries in Africa (Alban 2002).
