Maps on acid

The Undergraduate Economist has three interesting maps to consider. The first draws each country with its size proportional to its PPP-adjusted public sector health spending; the second shows territory size proportional to the number of people 15-49 with HIV. The final map shows each country with its territory size proportional to the percent of worldwide private spending on health services spent there.  Sadly, health care spending is lowest in the countries with the highest incidence of HIV infection.
