Early warning indicators for HIV drug resistance in Malawi
Antiviral Therapy Volume 13, 2008; Supplement 2: 69–75
On the basis of estimates from the 2005 ANC surveillance, 14% of Malawians between 15 and 49 years of age are infected with HIV. Approximately 187,000 (25% of which are children <15 years old) of the 13 million Malawaians are eligible for antiretroviral therapy. Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Southern Africa, the the 2003 gross national income being US$160 per capita. In 2004/2005, ~9.3% of the national budget (12.8% of the gross domestic product) was spent on the health sector, an average of US$20 per capita.
