In South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, many diseases that can be easily prevented such as tuberculosis, malaria or diarrhea are still claiming thousands of lives every year. On the other hand, the specter of HIV is constantly hunting down African communities, where 70% of all people infected with the HIV virus live in sub-Saharan Africa. Poor sanitary systems in urban jungles (slums) is another reason why people fall ill and most probably die if no prompt medical assistance was provided.
In order to furnish a healthcare infrastructure in developing countries, we have to work towards providing medical supplies and improving hygiene conditions. Proper equipment and sufficient medical clinics will easily help poor people in remote areas receive the adequate medical assistance they need, while access to clean drinkable water and proper sanitary facilities will serve as a disease prevention strategy.
