Household Responses to Prime Age Adult Mortality in Rural Mozambique: Implications for HIV/AIDS Mitigation Efforts and Rural Economic Development Policies

The objective of this paper is to use nationally representative rural household survey data from Mozambique to investigate the effects of prime-age adult death from illness. The paper also evaluates the characteristics of affected individuals and households, household demographic changes and livelihood adjustment strategies taken in response to prime-age (PA) death from illness. The paper then discusses the implications of these results for the design of efforts to mitigate some of the key effects of rural adult mortality.
