RANKED: The 15 Most Unhealthy Countries in Africa

Global dynamics are changing and forecasting of GDP cannot only measure human happiness, and potentials but a country’s ability to compete and grow and have political stability make human existence worthwhile.
It is on this premise that a new global health ranking released by Indigo Wellness Index, compiled a list of the world’s healthiest and most unhealthy countries in 2019.
The research published in the new journal Global Perspectives, measures healthy life expectancy, blood pressure, blood glucose (diabetes risk), obesity, depression, happiness, alcohol use, tobacco use, inactivity (too little exercise), and government spending on healthcare.
The report states that the countries with the lowest chance of prosperity and healthiness are affected by significant issues such as war, political turmoil and corruption.
