These Are The 10 African Countries With The Lowest Life Expectancy In The Continent, According to UNDP

The UNDP Global 2015 Human Development Report Overview lists the countries with the lowest life expectancy. With regard to Africa, we have highlighted the ten countries on the continent with the lowest life expectancy.

Rating summary

In this ranking, the country with the lowest life expectancy is Sierra Leone with 50.1 years. In addition, Sierra Leonean women live the shortest time with 50.8 years. Then, Sierra Leonean men are the ones who live the least long with 49.3 years.

It should be remembered that these countries are the last of the African ranking but also of the world ranking. These countries also have a very high rate of HIV / AIDS virus contamination.

Below is the summary table

African Ranking Country World rank Hope for both sexes Women’s rank Life Expectancy Women Men’s rank Hope Men
1 Sierra Leone 183th 50.1 183 th 50.8 183 th 49.3
2 angola 182 th 52.4 182 th 54.0 181 th 50.9
3 Central 181 th 52.5 181 th 54.1 181 th 50.9
4 Chad 180 th 53.1 179 th 54.5 179 th 51.7
5 Ivory Coast 179 th 53.3 180 th 54.4 178 th 52.3
6 Lesotho 178 th 53.7 178 th 55.4 179 th 51.7
7 Nigeria 177 th 54.5 177 th 55.6 177 th 53.4
8 Somalia 176 th 55.0 176 th 56.6 176 th 53.5
9 Cameroon 174 th 57.3 173 th 58.6 174 th 55.9
10 South Sudan 174 th 57.3 173 th 58.6 173 th 56.1

 

This poor positioning of African countries is surely due to the many wars, unstable political climates, and poverty. In addition, all the inadequacies of the hospital environment have a major impact on infant mortality. So many scourges undermine Africa. As Africans, we should think of lasting solutions to improve the quality of life. And this for the good of all.
