Health and Human Development - Global health: rural mortality rates

Rural mortality rates

The general gains in life expectancy as a measure of health status have
arisen through improvements in primary health care. However, in developing
regions and even in a lot of developed countries the emphasis in health
care is still on curative measures rather than preventative ones. WHO data
shows that in 1994,18 per cent of the world's population in rural areas had
access to sanitation compared with 70 per cent in urban areas. 63 per cent
of the world's population in rural areas had access to safe water compared
with 82 per cent in urban areas.
