Some time ago y discovered this amazing project: archive.worldmapper.org/textindex/text…

Altough it needs updating, I am sure many things shouldn´t have changed a bit.

Like this map of phisicians working


My collegue @mardi_steere is currently working with @PECCAfrica and gathering info about health-care human resources in the african continent. Today she detected a frightening number👉6 #PEM / #PEdsICU trained docs for more than 800 millons inhab👇

Yes, believe the numbers

TO make things worse:
It is predicted that by 2050, 35–40% of children and adolescents globally are projected to be living in Africa.

This is what Vearey J et al recently published: bmcpublichealth.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.11…
So... if we do not do something right now, and invest in #Africa to change their reality more than 1 in 3 children will remain unprotected and be exposed to BAD and INSUFFICIENT health-care.

In other regions similar things happens:
In #Pakistan for instance 🇵🇰 with 200 millons, Haque A et al, @Qalb2Abbas showned that they have 16 PICUs.

It is pretty clear to me, that if international community does not react promptly, we will give the generations of children that follow us (our sons & daughters) a sad reality

It is OUR responsibility to take measures and try to change the world we live in.
