We would also attempt to put together more and stronger police forces in areas of economic destress.

Along with that we would support and work with the following UN groups working to develope countries like south africa

UNDP--United Nations Development Programme- is the UN's global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help the people have better lives. (so it helps them to become more aware of things...like AIDs and other things going on)

UNAIDS--allows universal access to HIV treatment, prevention,care and support. raises money and awareness for HIV because people in South Africa arent very aware of the precautions and what causes it

UNICEF- united nations childrens fund....helps the future generation of the country and stop the poverty and violence and disease going on HIV/AIDS-Deaths 350,000 22,000 Literacy-total population 99 percent 86.4 percent gdp-per capita(avg yearly income) 46,400 dollars 10,100 dollars Unemployment rate 9.3 percent 24 percent Population below poverty line 12 percent 50 percent
