    NEW WAVE’ WON’T BE A TSUNAMI: THE GENESIS OF HIGH HIV RATES IN AFRICA

    Helen Epstein& Stewart Parkinson
    Health Policy and Development Journal, 3:116-118,2005.

    During the past five years there have been dire predictions of a coming ‘New Wave’ of HIV infections that could destabilize strategically important countries in Asia and Eastern Europe. Certainly the epidemic in East and Southern Africa is horrifying. In most countries some 20-40 percent of adults are HIV positive and the long-term social consequences of this disaster are still being analyzed. Approximately 1 percent of adults in India, China and Russia are already infected with HIV. Although this percentage is small, this amounts to millions of people. The prospect of an explosive “New Wave” on the scale of Africa’s in these countries-all growing economic and military powers-is frightening. The CIA was the first to issue warnings about the “New Wave” epidemics and stated that such a prospect should be considered as a threat to US security. But will the “New Wave” ever occur?
