Health and Sanitation
Global health situation is observed on a variety of health components such as population, life expectancy, age structure of deaths, leading causes of global deaths, health of infants and small children, health of older children and adolescents and health of adults and older people. Despite significant progress in terms of access to safe drinking water and sanitation, increase in antenatal care and decrease in maternal mortality and diseases such as polio, tuberculosis and malaria, still a strong and continuous effort is essential to reduce the existing diseases and overcome the challenges related to health. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report many of the health indicators are yet to be achieved, for example, every year more than six million children still die before reaching the age of 5 years while maternal mortality rate is high in developing and least developed countries.
Today the world is fighting the challenge to ensure a healthy life and wellbeing for all people at all stages of life through a relentless effort that includes but not limited to reducing maternal mortality ratio, ending preventable deaths of newborn and children under 5 years of age, AIDS and other prevalent water-borne and communicable diseases along with strengthening country’s capacity for reducing health risk, managing health problems and creating health awareness in the community.dRi offers its expertise to contribute in world effort to improve health and sanitation.
