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.
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

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.
