World development: health and economy

Year: 2005 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
By looking more closely at the regions we can see that the situation in the world is quite diverse. This chart portrays the status of development with two important parameters, health and economy. Regions, like Sub-Saharan Africa or the Commonwealth of Independent States (former Soviet Republics) are quite spread out widely in the diagram, in both dimensions. Worth noting is the countries far from the imaginary line towards the top right corner. Cuba and Vietnam, for instance, have high values for infant mortality, but the relatively closed economies land them in the middle on economy. Botswana, on the other hand, have a rather good economical situation, but is lacking in health (due to HIV/AIDS among other things) compared to other countries with the same GDP per capita.
