Global health issues
Mar 7, 2011

Despite incredible improvements in health since 1950, there are still a number of challenges, which should have been easy to solve. Consider the following:

* One billion people lack access to health care systems.
* Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number one group of conditions causing death globally.
* Over 8 million children under the age of 5 die from malnutrition and mostly preventable diseases, each year.
* In 2002, almost 11 million people died of infectious diseases alone, far more than the number killed in the natural or man-made catastrophes that make headlines. (These are the latest figures presented by the World Health Organization.)
* AIDS/HIV has spread rapidly. UNAIDS estimates for 2008 that there are roughly:
o 33.4 million living with HIV
o 2.7 million new infections of HIV
o 2 million deaths from AIDS
* Tuberculosis kills 1.3 million people each year, with 9.4 million new cases a year.
* 1.6 million people still die from pneumococcal diseases every year, making it the number one vaccine-preventable cause of death worldwide. More than half of the victims are children. (The pneumococcus is a bacterium that causes serious infections like meningitis, pneumonia and sepsis. In developing countries, even half of those children who receive medical treatment will die. Every second surviving child will have some kind of disability.)
* Malaria causes some 243 million acute illnesses and 863,000 deaths, annually.
* 164,000 people, mostly children under 5, died from measles in 2008 even though effective immunization costs less than 1 US dollars and has been available for more than 40 years.

What is the solution in your opinion?

besides bacteria and viruses, there are the diseases of bad practices, like obesity, which is a result of increasing portion size and widespread of junk food...but for what you mentioned, each problem should be dealt with separately and solutions should be proposed for each...better health policies,better care,more health information,more health education in schools
