Even does not seem, poverty it is like a form of disease that can spread throughout a country. Actually poverty affects very high percentages in various countries, whether called developed or underdeveloped.
It is known that the wealth of the world is in few hands due to the unequal distribution of these incomes. About 90% of these riches are found in only 20% of the world's population. The poor, who are the majority in the world, do not have the necessary income to live, so they subsist on scarce resources.
So it's no wonder that more than 1,000 billion people live on less than a dollar a day. And about 2,800 billion people, roughly half the world's population, live on less than $ 2 a day. The objective of international organizations is to reduce poverty extreme for 2015 by half, compared to 1990 levels.
Starting in the 90s, poverty was reduced in certain sectors of the Asian continent, by an average of 5%. as Latin America 3%, while in the other countries it still remains the same.
Malnutrition is also part of the poverty sector. In this case, those who tend to suffer the most are children under 5 years of age who do not have an ideal weight for their age.
In the case of Africa in an average of 10 years this problem increased by 3%, in Asia decreased by 7% and in Latin America it also decreased by 5%.
There are plans that governments carry out to be able to see the progress of poverty, whether it is decreasing or increasing.
Currently there are at least 900 million people around the world living in extreme poverty, and even if you try to end this problem, it is necessary that the work be constant and in equal proportions, to achieve good results.
Some data that we must remember is that out of every five children one does not have the opportunity to study primary education. And about 876 million adults are illiterate, two-thirds of them are women. The most dramatic thing is that every day 30 children under the age of 000 die from diseases that could have been cured. And in developed countries, one child in ten will not reach 5 years of age. The leading cause of death in sub-Saharan Africa is HIV / AIDS.
