Also noteworthy is the near-disappearance of HIV/AIDS as a cause of child mortality. In Kenya—with a much lower HIV prevalence—the ‘AIDS bump’ in the age profile of mortality has largely disappeared. The principal cause, as in Botswana, is the steep decline in mortality among people living with HIV (dropping from 10 per cent annually to 2 per cent of the population at ages 30–39).

The evidence regarding the association of HIV prevalence and education, however, is not consistent with this view. Fortson (2008) concludes that ‘better-educated respondents are more likely to be HIV-positive’ according to DHS data from Cameroon, Kenya, and Tanzania (but obtains small and insignificant coefficients for Burkina Faso and Ghana). Magadi (2011), and Magadi and Desta (2011), find a positive link between access to education and HIV prevalence, especially for women, based on pooled DHS data from twenty countries.

In 2014, 29,400 people were living with HIV/AIDS (down from 34,400 in 2001), and 1,500 new HIV infections occurred (down from 4,400 in 1991). The number of Jamaicans receiving treatment has increased to 9,100 in 2014. AIDS-related deaths (1,300 in 2014), accounted for 6 per cent of total deaths, but AIDS is an important cause of premature mortality among adults, accounting for about one-quarter of deaths in the 15–49 age group. The most common indicator of the magnitude of an HIV epidemic is HIV prevalence, the share of people living with HIV in a population—typically the population aged 15–49, because the impact of HIV/AIDS is concentrated in this population.
