The 10 Worst Countries in the World For Health Care

3 / 10
Central African Republic
Central African Republic

With a WHO health systems performance score of 0.156/1, the Central African Republic (CAR) is the third worst country where health care is concerned. It is a landlocked country in Central Africa enclosed by Chad, Sudan, South Sudan, DRC, The Republic of Congo, and Cameroon. More than two years of sectarian violence have decimated the already fragile health systems in CAR. The political instability and general lawlessness, combined with poverty and poor infrastructure, have brought down the average life expectancy to just 49 years. This situation has led to a rise in preventable diseases such as malaria among families still hiding from armed groups in the bush. Sanitation problems and lack of clean water are major sources of ill health in this country. Diarrhea is one of the major causes of death for children under 5 years old. On a positive note, a peace forum has been created. It is intended to start the painful process of rebuilding the country and its systems.
