The TAC states that 900 people die every day in South Africa from AIDS-related illnesses. HIV/AIDS has economic consequences. The impact on the health sector is increased public health expenditure, with HIV/AIDS utilisation requirements increasing more than threefold between 2000 and 2010 (Martin 2003:27). The cost to the government of AIDS-related care was R1,493 billion in 2000, rising to R4,077 billion in 2009. Because of HIV/AIDS, South Africa will require a real annual increase in government health expenditure of 6,9 per cent per annum from 1997 to 2010 (Barnett & Whiteside 2006:320).
