Abstract

Although there have been have numerous studies on AIDS documenting its mortality, its epidemiological

political factors and policies may help curtail the spread of AIDS. In this paper I consider how a variety of

capacity are better able to reduce the spread of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Moreover, I argue that while

responsive to the needs of the population and can be more efficient in curtailing the spread of HIV/AIDS.

empirical results indicate that greater state capacity indeed appears to help curtail HIV/AIDS infection

rates.
