Q. How many people worldwide don't have access to healthcare?

A. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), up to 3.5 billion people – almost half the world's population – lack access to the health services they need, with almost 100 million people being pushed to extreme poverty each year because of out-of-pocket expenses

 

Q. Why is there a lack of healthcare in developing countries?

 

A. A lack of medicine, water and electricity; shortages of doctors; prohibitive costs: they

all stand in the way of providing good quality healthcare to all. The World Health

Organization estimates that in 22 countries, the entire healthcare systems need to be

rebuilt.

Q. Do poor countries have access to healthcare?

A. People in poor countries tend to have less access to health services than those in

better-off countries, and within countries, the poor have less access to health services

 

Q.How is healthcare in developing countries?

 

A. In pursuing health-sector reform, developing countries face many of the same

problems regarding access, efficiency, and quality that developed countries face,

although these problems are much more severe. They also face greater challenges in

providing basic public health services, especially in rural areas.

Q. Do developing countries have more health issues?

A. Healthcare systems in many developing countries have been chronically

underfunded, lack capacity, and are continuing to grapple with the legacies of preceding health crises, such as the Ebola virus, malaria, HIV, malnutrition, as well as challenges related to high levels of air pollution

 

Q. What are the biggest problems with healthcare in developing countries?

 

A.The health systems in countries throughout the developing world suffer from

insufficient financial and human resources, limited institutional capacity and

infrastructure, weak health information systems, lack of comprehensiveness, embedded inequity and discrimination in availability of services, absence of community

 

Q. What medical problems do poor countries have?

 

A. Every year around 10 million people in poorer countries die of illnesses that can be

very cheaply prevented or managed, including malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, and diarrhea.

 

Only around $100 per capita is spent annually on the healthcare of people living in low-

income countries (adjusted for purchasing power).

 

Q. What percentage of the world has free healthcare?

 

A. All but 43 countries in the world have free healthcare or access to universal

healthcare for at least 90% of their citizens according to Hudson's Global Residence

Index. However, Brazil is the only country in the world that offers free healthcare for all

its citizens.

Q. What is the most underserved population in healthcare?

 

A. Underserved groups refer to populations that do not have adequate access to medical

care. This includes rural, elderly, low-literacy, blue collar, and poor populations.

Q. What percent of the world has health issues?

 

A. Over 95% of the world's population has health problems, with over a third having

more than five ailments (ScienceDaily)

Q. Why do poor countries have more disease?

 

A. Cancers, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory illnesses, and other

noncommunicable diseases are on the rise in low-income countries because of the

increased prevalence of key modifiable behavioral risks, such as unhealthy diets and

tobacco use, and reductions in the infectious diseases 

 

Q.What is the death rate in underdeveloped countries?

A. The least developed countries are particularly disadvantaged in terms of adult

survival, where 240 per 1,000, or 24 per cent, of 15-year-olds die before age 60.

Measured as the number of deaths to children under the age of 5 years per 1,000 live

births.

Q. What percentage of diseases are in developing countries?

A. Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 74% of all deaths globally. Each year, 17 million people die from a NCD before age 70; 86% of these premature deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Of all NCD deaths, 77% are in low- and middle-income countries.

 

Q. What is responsible for causing approximately 80% of diseases in developing

countries?

A. With malnutrition as a common contributor, the five biggest infectious killers in the

world are acute respiratory infections, HIV/AIDS, diarrhea, malaria and tuberculosis,

responsible for nearly 80% of the total infectious disease burden and claiming about 12 million people per year mainly in developing countries.

 

Q. What is the leading cause of death in developing countries?

 

A. People living in a low-income country are far more likely to die of a communicable

disease than a noncommunicable disease. Despite the global decline, six of the top 10

causes of death in low-income countries are communicable diseases. Malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS all remain in the top 10.
