Children are rarely privy to primary education in comparison to their urban counterparts. Also, access to suitable health care continues to be a major issue. Food security has become such an obstacle that 45 percent of all deaths to children under 5 are a result of malnutrition.

The United Nations Human Development Index combines statistics in education, living standards and health to determine the overall range of ongoing development at the personal level, showing that people and their capabilities “should be the ultimate criteria for assessing the development of a country.” Sub-Saharan Africa accounted for over 80 percent of all countries listed in the low human development category, the lowest category, including the bottom ten.
