-related cost, mainly due to absenteeism (see the discussion of the impact of HIV/AIDS on private enterprises, above). Thus, an AIDS incidence rate among the workforce of 1 percent is assumed to reduce total factor productivity by 0.5 percent. Regarding the role of physical capital, we distinguish between a “closed-economy model” and an “open-economy model”, and estimates of the impact of HIV/AIDS are reported separately for each setting below.

The paper provides an analysis of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the health sector, public education, the supply of labor and the returns to training in nine Southern African countries. Drawing on the preceding sections, it assesses the impact of HIV/AIDS on per capita income in a neoclassical growth framework. HIV/AIDS affects per capita income mainly through its impact of human capital, as measured by the supply of experienced workers. Other factors include the impact on capital accumulation, on education, and on total factor productivity.

According to the July 2002 UNAIDS Report ( UNAIDS, 2002 ), the number of adults (15-49 age group) infected with the virus increased from an estimated 33.2 percent in 1996 to 38.8 percent in 2001.
