But, just as Pelletier and colleagues found that most of the child deaths occur in the mild to moderately malnourished group, most AIDS deaths in poor populations with generalized epidemics do not occur in risk groups. The effectiveness of targeted interventions in countries with concentrated HIV epidemics cannot be generalized across heterogeneous populations. Another methodological similarity is the observation that statistical measures of risk may have no intrinsic meaning when comparing heterogeneous groups; this also applies to comparisons of populations with and without endemic tropical diseases, which are discussed in chapter 3.

The means are at hand for preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and for improving lives. The only problem is convincing people that those two objectives are one and the same. u Appendix: sex, everywhere Since HIV can be transmitted sexually, and most HIV is transmitted sexually in poor countries (and increasingly in transition countries), it is reasonable to include sexual behavior as one of the determinants of HIV prevalence. Nevertheless, differences in sexual behavior between different populations do not adequately explain differences in HIV prevalence.

1998; WHO, 1998b). 1 lists just a selection of the studies that document the very high prevalence of parasites and polyparasitism in children and adults in poor communities. Parasite interactions Parasites interact in various ways; some parasites lessen the impact of other parasites, while some magnify the effects of others. The presence of Ascaris (a kind of worm) seems to enable the coexistence of two malaria strains. That could suggest that Ascaris offer immunomodulation, allowing people with this parasite to be vulnerable to more than one strain of malaria.
