Infectious diseases are not the biggest killer in the world. Even in poorer areas, it was replaced by non-exchangeable, often civilized diseases. But unprecedented success brings unexpected problems – in Africa, people often die of infections, and adult health care is insufficient. Instead of cholera, poor people die of diabetes.
People in Africa are experiencing a high age because they have cancer. However, local health is not ready for this, for example, in Uganda, there is only one radiation therapy system waiting for the crowd,Source:
Infection illnesses do not cause the death of Africa since 2011. In 2015, African Diet, such as dysentery, pneumonia, malaria or tuberculosis accounted for 44% of all deaths. This figure is still high, and in many parts of the world infectious diseases are less than ten percent of the total mortality rate.
However, the number of infections in Africa declines. Over the past few decades, their number has faster than three or four times the number of developed countries. Africa is experiencing a rapid medical revolution.
People live long enough
In 1990, 25% of the total number of deaths died in poor countries such as diabetes or malignant neoplasms. In 2040, this proportion is about 80 percent.
The increase in the number of non-infectious diseases is explained by the fact that people suffer from a long life span. Many people in poorer countries are still facing similar diseases than in developed countries. Other diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and diseases of the civilization, are in fact a poor disease.
According to medical expert Thomas Bollyki, poor countries should face the consequences of their success. Because these countries are struggling with infectious diseases by the international community. In developed countries, this is not the case. In the US cities of 1900-1936, mortality decreased mainly due to water filtration and chlorination. Effective hygiene, quarantine and education have benefited from the benefits of effective drugs.
Poor countries achieve these results faster, but are often without institutional changes from cities in developed countries. She died childhood. However, the result is often more common in adults who are inadequate medical care or job opportunities.
Therefore, poor countries need to spend more on prevention and treatment of noncommunicable diseases. African elites often ignore this issue and look for caretaker overseas. However, the rest of those countries are, first of all, very limited in healthcare.
Africa is moving in Africa at a staggering pace, but people who are ill are often unprepared and overcrowded.
Repatriation of the disease should be in Africa and abroad. Cancer, upper respiratory tract diseases, heart disease, and diabetes mellitus account for around 60% of all deaths worldwide. However, only one per cent of the aid to developing countries is spent on health care for non-communicable diseases.
Poor nations should also act against pollution and tobacco. The African government should oppose tobacco manufacturers and other harmful lifestyles.
