Transcript of Global Poverty, Disasters and Disease.

Today in History:
Global Poverty, Disasters,
and Disease.
Global Poverty
Our world is filled with billions of people , but it’s truly devastating that most of the world’s nations and countries are in the state of poverty. Almost half the world which is a little bit more than 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 a day. Unfortunately, every year millions of lives end because of it. Global Poverty is not only one cause, for it has many problems linked to it.
Causes of Global Poverty.
Poverty has many reasons behind it. It’s extremely devastating to know that the three richest men in the world are wealthier than the 48 poorest countries combined.

Causes of World Poverty:

Overpopulation is a cause of poverty, a high population density pressures the available resources in the country, as the resources can only support a certain number of people. As birth rates increase, resources decrease. In countries struck by poverty, there is lack of education so they don't know much about family planning, so most developing countries have high population rates.

A nation's level of poverty can also depend on the population density and agricultural productivity. For example one of the most highly populated countries known as Bangladesh, has many people to their population but there is low-productivity of resources which lead to the country's high level of poverty.

Lack of education is another cause of World Poverty. Most kids in third-world countries aren't given the opportunity to be educated, they work their whole lives to earn the wages that can't really maintain their families which is heartbreaking. In high populated countries, there are less employment jobs because of the amount of people.

Natural disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes have caused millions of dollars worth of infrastructure and the loss of lives. Developing countries often suffer much more extensive crises in the hands of natural disasters because limited resources become obstacles for the construction of adequate housing, infrastructure, and mechanisms for responding to crises.

and each of them can be very destructive.
Effects of Disasters.
Disasters can not only leave ruins behind but it can also
alter the lives of many. Disasters can cause destruction of homes, financial problems and unfortunately even death. Those are the effects of disasters, once a disaster strikes, it can leave many marks behind forever.

Causes of Disease.
Lack of opportunity
-Due to their economic situation there is less employment. Also due to the lack of education, many do no have all the components for a job, unfortunately.

Mental and physical aliments
- There is lack of nourishment.

Drug abuse and addiction
-Addictions usually arise for those that have no home or guidance in life, it's truly devastating.

Increase in Crimes
There is a lack of education and guidance, so crimes do increase because of poverty.

Child and woman abuse
- Children work their whole lives and most of them never get an education. Women are also mistreated, they are all forced to do labor.

- Many do not have homes.

Educational deprivation
There is loss of education, and education is so very important. I believe we should be thankful that we get an education, we are lucky to have one.

Global Poverty, Disasters and Disease.
Disasters is connected to poverty in a way, Disasters can cause Poverty, because disasters have caused people to lose their homes, their jobs and much more.

People in poverty lack education, health and much more. Since they lack health, they can suffer with many diseases. This is how the two are connected.
Between 2000 and 2012, natural disasters caused $1.7 trillion in damage and affected 2.9 billion people.
There are many disease currently discovered and there are many more left to uncover and treat.
As of 2011, 19 million children worldwide remain unvaccinated.
