Zambia is still one of the poorest countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
The alarming poverty and chronic malnutrition indicators are joined by yet another alarming figure: the prevalence of HIV/AIDS, which affects 17% of the population. Zambia is the country ranked sixth highest in the world in terms of the number of HIV-positive people, a problem that primarily affects the productive generation, diminishing their capacity for development and jeopardising the future of the country.
