Health & WASH in Sub-Saharan Africa - WHO, UNICEF, USAID and World Vision at Aid & Development Africa Summit - 28 February - 1 March 2017 in Nairobi

Aid and International Development Forum has released an infographic on key challenges and health threats in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The infographic provides a snapshot of the current health & WASH situation, communicable diseases, child health and vaccination as well as trends in financing and development assistance.

There is a significant gap between SSA and the rest of the world in regards to water security. At present there are 319 million people without access to reliable drinking water sources in the region.

Communicable diseases remain a major public health challenge in SSA, causing a significant burden of illness, disability and mortality.

SSA continues to fall behind global standards in regards to health services. While the WHO recommends 23 doctors per 10,000 population, in Kenya there is only one doctor per 10,000 people and in Ethiopia and Tanzania figures are even less.

Download the infographic now to gain an insight into the recent improvements as well as areas which limit SSA progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Visit africa.aidforum.org/news/infographic-was...-saharan-east-africa

The infographic is a timely release for the 2nd annual Aid & Development Africa Summit at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi on 28 February - 1 March 2017, which gathers 300 humanitarian leaders to discuss how technological innovations and collaboration can improve aid delivery, community health resilience, WASH, maternal and child health in SSA.
