Changing population structures of SubSaharan Africa
SubSaharan Africa are undergoing a population crisis. From 1960s to the late 1980s
they have high birth rates and rapidly falling death rates. It is a typical country found in
stage 2 of the demographic transition model.
Then, in the 1990s, the HIV/AIDs epidemic struck the area. It spread more rapidly
here than in any other part of the world. The spread was encouraged by these other
· Poor levels of education
· Low status of women
· A mobile population where many people migrated to seek work
· Poor levels of basic health care and health education
· traditional societies where AIDs sufferers were stigmatised
· The high costs of drugs in a poor society
HIV/AIDs around the world.
