Botswana is often praised as a leading modern African state. Although the country enjoys one of the highest per capita incomes on the continent, it also faces sobering challenges such as one of the highest HIV/AIDS rates in the world. Policy design, the alcohol industry, and cultural traditions and practices exacerbate an already difficult situation, stunting development and preventing a higher quality of life for Botswana and its people.
This thesis will reveal the strong incentives of the government to allow the alcohol industry to behave irresponsibly, by taking advantage of cultural practices to advance their market share. Recommendations will be made to overcome these obstacles to build a more promising future for Botswana’s citizens.
