Living Longer

The World Health Organization released its latest figures on life expectancy, which has risen to a record 73 years for a girl born in 2012 and 68 for a boy, following successes in fighting diseases and child mortality.

As populations age, someone has to pay for the increased services, pension plans and the like they will require, which is why I would include the topic in this particular column.

Nine countries in sub-Saharan Africa have life expectancies of less than 55 for babies of both sexes.

Tidbits

--Between 2000 and 2012, measles deaths worldwide have been cut by almost 80% - from 562,000 to 122,000 deaths.

--The risk of a child dying before their fifth birthday is 8 times higher in the WHO African Region than a child in the WHO European Region.

--Nearly 800 women die every day due to complications in pregnancy and childbirth.

--A boy born in 2012 in a high-income country can expect to live to 75.8 years – more than 15 years longer than a boy born in a low-income country (60.2 years). For girls, the difference is even more marked; a gap of 18.9 years separates life expectancy in high-income (82.0 years) and low-income countries (63.1 years)

--The top three causes of premature death are coronary (ischaemic) heart disease, lower respiratory infections (such as pneumonia) and stroke.
