The World Bank or International Monetary Fund (IMF). 1. Introduction. Since Independence, Sub-Saharan Africa has experienced a rapid succession of economic, social, and political problems, among which we highlight the fall in foreign-exchange receipts, the weak performance of the industrial sector, and the decline in agricultural production—and consequently, the drop in export volume—which led Sub-Saharan countries .

      Precisely because structural adjustment policies have often resulted in greatly reduced spending for health, education, and welfare programs, the role of structural adjustment in contributing to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, has been a major focus of debate in recent years The fact that the World Bank seems.   Africa Action, an organization working for political, economic and social justice in Africa is highly critical of SAPS, noting that, The basic assumption behind structural adjustment was that an increased role for the market would bring benefits to both poor and rich.
