Description: In the midst of the 2002/3 food crisis in Southern Africa social scientists De Waal and Whiteside (well known for their respective work on the social construction of famines and the socio-economic impacts of AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa), hypothesised in the Lancet that the AIDS pandemic was triggering a ‘new variant famine’ across Southern Africa – a region characterised by recurrent severe food shortages and high adult HIV prevalence rates. This short review considers the applicability of the ‘new variant famine’ hypothesis to Malawi.
