Have worked in deprived settings of West Africa and know how a combination of lack of education and poverty reek havoc on the populace. Due to lack of education and resources minor conditions that are preventable become complications with their associated increased rates in morbidity and mortality. The developing world has a lot of potential (human and material) that is going waste due to the irresponsibility on the part of our crop of leaders coupled with the ignorance of the populace (some of us are of the view that this is being perpetuated by the ruling elite, to maintain their hold on the population as an ignorant community just has no question to ask of you, moreso to demand accountability). An educated population can appreciate their rights as well as their needs and wants and work for that as well as keep leadership on its toes.
My interest is to be part of a global team to educate the growing population of children and adolescents to live responsible lives with the appropriate up to date scientific knowledge to achieve a future of healthy and prosperous nations.
