A Proof That Africans Are Getting Healthier And Wealthier by mcgaius: 9:08pm On Nov 21, 2017
Africans are getting healthier and wealthier...but they are still held back by war and violence: IN MANY ways the story of #Africa in the 21st century is one of #success. Great strides have been made tackling diseases such as HIV/AIDS and malaria. A baby born in Africa today is less likely to die young, and more likely to go to school than one born in 2000. Life expectancy at birth increased by nearly ten years, to 60, between 2000 and 2015. But many Africans also feel less secure than they did a decade ago. Civil wars and social unrest have proliferated, according to an index of how Africa’s leaders are performing.

The #IbrahimIndexofGovernance, produced by the foundation of #MoIbrahim, a Sudanese-British telecoms-billionaire-turned-philanthropist, has been trying to quantify how well countries are run since 2007. It is an ambitious effort involving 100 indicators of such things as political participation, respect for human rights and sound economic management. The latest data, released on November 20th, show a worrying divergence. Of the 26 indicators related to health, welfare and education, 21 have improved over the past decade.
