Adult mortality and consumption growth in the age of HIV/AIDS
Author
Abstract
The article discusses the study which examines the impact of adult mortality shock on both the short- and long-run consumption growth of surviving household members. The study focuses on the Kagera Region in the North-West of Tanzania, an area that has been deeply affected by HIV/AIDS. The researchers conclude that adult mortality shocks, especially of females, have a large impact on the growth in consumption of surviving household members. However, the researchers suggest that further assessment on how households may have been able to cope in the long run is needed..
