Venezuela's business climate is the worst in Latin America, according to a joint report produced by Brazilian Getulio Vargas Foundation and the University of Munich.

In the so-called Economic Climate Indicator of Latin America in January, Venezuela reached 1.5 points, way below the region's average (5.5 points) and that of Paraguay and Peru, 7 points.

Venezuela's indicator implies a setback with respect to the third quarter of 2012, when the country obtained 3.4 points.

Unlike Venezuela, the region's reported average (5.5 points) by January is the best in the last 18 months, except for Ecuador and Bolivia, whose business climates are similar to that of Venezuela.

Venezuela's economy has been mainly characterized in recent years by the implementation of different controls in the private sector. Obstacles such as difficulties to buy US dollars, price regulations on food and other products, as well as expropriations in different areas are just some of the aspects undermining the country's business climate.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
