CONSULTARE HEALTH APP

Life expectancy in Mozambique and many other African nations is devastatingly low, and some contributing factors include: Mozambique has only 0.07 physicians per 1,000 people, which is 32 times lower than the WHO recommended ratio. As a result, hospitals are overcrowded, understaffed, and under-resourced, which frequently results in suboptimal care given to patients who could be treated at home. Lack of access to any clinics can cause minor injuries and preventable/treatable diseases to become fatal without knowledge of basic first aid. Rampant spread of communicable diseases due to lack of elementary knowledge of microbiology and what it means to be contagious. Poor nutritional knowledge, which contributes to the high maternal, infant, and child mortality rates. In short, lack of basic health knowledge is a problem that is killing people. The right information, in the right format, with the right accessibility could save countless lives all across the nation.
