### Math Gap-Minder: Patterns and trends of HIV on the Human Population

• 1. Patterns and Trends of HIV on the human population What is HIV? Also called: human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. HIV damages the immune system, interfering with the body's ability to fight infections. Made by: Ashutosh Goel
• 2. GAPMINDER IS A NON-PROFIT VENTURE SETUP UNDER THE UNITED NATIONS MILLENNIUM GOALS PROJECT. IT AIMS TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT OF THE WORLD BY RAISING AWARENESS THROUGH STATISTICS & OTHER INFORMATION.
• 3. WHAT ARE DYNAMIC AND BUBBLE GRAPHS Gapminder uses dynamic/bubble graphs for displaying worldwide data on different topics. Each bubble on the graph represents a single column on the x-axis and multiple rows on the y-axis. When the user hovers on a bubble, it displays information about a country on the respective topic. Example of a Bubble graph

• 5. EXPLORING HIV ON GRAPH I plan to choose Qatar and Zimbabwe as my targets for this study. I choose Zimbabwe and Qatar because I feel that the HIV levels of these two countries are completely different. The graph and statistics suggest the countries are complete opposite of each other with respect to HIV levels. I will construct a time-series graph for both the countries to show their HIV trends and look for patterns in time. I will compare them in one graph to show the difference of HIV levels.

• 7. STATISTICS Qatar Zimbabwe 0.00 0.01 0.06 10.1 0.06 13.6 0.06 17.2 0.06 20.6 0.06 23.3 0.06 25.1 0.06 26.2 0.06 26.5 0.06 26.3 0.06 25.7 Year Statistics P e r c e n t a g e The values shown are taken from the year 1980 and then straight to 1991. Then from 1991, the data moves till 2000

• 9. ANALYSIS In the graph, Zimbabwe has shown growth in HIV levels straight from 1980 straight till 1998. The graph then declines until 2000. Growth-From 0.01-26.5% Decay-From 26.5-25.7% Qatar has shown consistencycy in its HIV levels. They have appreciated (0.01% to 0.06%) from 1980 until 1991. From there, the levels neither risen nor fallen. Growth-0.00-0.06% No decay & Zimbabwe Qatar Year P e r c e n t a g e
• 10. WHAT DID I DO? Qatar has constantly kept its HIV levels at a lower level while Zimbabwe has shown major fluctuations. Qatar HIV level haven’t risen from 0.06% since 2010. It has remained stable and constant. HIV levels in Qatar rose from 0.00% to 0.06% in 11 years. Zimbabwe showed a massive 10% growth in that same time period. It then slightly decreases by 0.8% over a period of two years. According to the Gapminder HIV dynamic graph, the income of a person in Qatar is much higher than that of a person in Zimbabwe. This suggests that Qatar people have much more disposable income on healthcare than the people of Zimbabwe.
• 11. Qatar has taken many steps towards treating HIV in its country. It’s consistent HIV levels are the result of its awareness campaigns and advanced healthcare. It’s funding comes from its oil industry(OPEC) Qatar still needs to improve on its research and evaluation techniques. This factor is vital because if a new disease breaks out the people will be aware of its symptoms and can find ways to prevent them.

• 12. Map showing the distribution of HIV HIV & ZIMBABWE Zimbabwe has been prevalent with HIV ever since the 4th quarter of the 21st century. Right now, more than 1,300,000 people aged between 15 & 49 are suffering from HIV. GDP of Zimbabwe- 7.366 billion US\$ Zimbabwe is doing everything it can to tackle HIV. However, it is facing major drawbacks with donor funding, because of its fairly weak economy. This drawback will further affect the distribution of drugs in the country and affect overall health.
