India – Imagine your loved one wakes up in the morning with a fever and only to be told by your local hospital that there is no healthcare facility available to cure him/her of the ailment! Imagine you are poor and cannot afford the finances to even pay for local treatment…, perhaps the money is available but then the expertise is lacking – his/her life now hinges on a ledge waiting for destiny to strike.
This is the fate of millions of people around the world especially in developing countries, such as in most countries in Africa, where access to affordable healthcare is poor with little or no standard hospitals.
And while this suffering continues to haunt children, women and the poor, millions are dying from curable diseases and non-communicable diseases.
According to the WHO, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) kill 38 million people each year and almost three quarters of NCD deaths – 28 million – occur in low- and middle-income countries.
“Sixteen million NCD deaths occur before the age of 70; 82% of these “premature” deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries. Cardiovascular diseases account for most NCD deaths, or 17.5 million people annually, followed by cancers (8.2 million), respiratory diseases (4 million), and diabetes (1.5 million).”
And though efforts are being made by developed nations, the WHO and governments to address the growing challenges of the health burden on children, women and poor people, the impact is yet to mitigate the crises with more people succumbing to the various forms of diseases affecting nations.
