The paper explores existing literature to demonstrate the transnational nature of HIV/AIDS, a health issue that affects the entire world and not just distant African nations. The paper illustrates how if left unchecked, the disease can decimate populations, destabilize nations and undermine the strength of the global economy. The paper maintains that researchers and policy makers must recognize the transnational nature of HIV/AIDS and plan their response accordingly in order to mount the most effective and lasting response to this issue.

HIV/AIDS in a Transboundary Context
Designing Appropriate Institutions
Conclusion: The Way Forward

From the Paper:

"The matter of HIV/AIDS is one of the world's most significant transboundary issues, largely because it affects such a large swath of the world. Current estimates, always out-of-date thanks to under-reporting and an increasing infection rate, are not entirely certain. In 2004, the World Health Organization that there was anywhere between 34 million and 46 million people infected worldwide. Of those infected, two-thirds lived in Africa and one-fifth lived in Asia (Beaglehole, Irwin & Prentice 2004, p. 1). Beyond the fact that HIV/AIDS is a major health issue that adversely affects the quality of life of those infected and their families, there are other associated problems. For instance, Haacker (2004) reported that HIV/AIDS has a significantly adverse effect on economic development through the prevailing social fabric (p. 42)."
