The study looks at the global economic crisis and the Nigerian economy, with a focus on HIV prevalence and life expectancy in Nigeria. The study examines the influence of HIV/AIDS prevalence on Nigerian economic development, as well as the impact of life expectancy on Nigerian economic growth and labour force productivity on Nigerian economic growth. The study used panel data from four Nigerian states from 2002 to 2021 to investigate four variables (HIV/AIDS, life expectancy rate, labour force productivity, and GDP rate). The acquired data was analysed with the SPSS software using Ordinary Least Square statistics. According to the study findings, HIV/AIDS and labour force productivity both have a negative influence on Nigerian economic growth, but life expectancy increases Nigerian economic growth. This implies that issues impacting life expectancy, such as new born mortality, maternal health, and environmental factors, must be given substantial consideration if Nigeria is to attain sustainable development.
