Africa is not a healthy continent. On all indicators of health, Africa lags behind the rest of the world, and behind poor countries of South-East and South Asia that were behind Africa when measured on these metrics a few decades ago. Much of this gap, which has widened since the 1980s is a consequence of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus / Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) epidemic which has hit Africa harder than any region on Earth, but much of it (as well as the sometimes sluggish and ineffective responses to HIV/AIDS) can be blamed on other factors. African governments focussed on direct payment, and continue to do so to a large extent, after most countries started to move more towards facilitating health insurance schemes. Widespread and rapacious corruption has meant that large slices of health budgets have gone missing. Infrastructure problems have made it difficult to provide services to many people in more remote areas. Poverty has slowed the emergence of private healthcare initiatives outside of a few cities. Conflict has directly affected Africans' health through high numbers of death and injuries, and indirectly by hampering healthcare provision. All these problems, as well as Africa's sheer size and its position on the globe - most of it is in the tropics where the nastiest germs and parasites flourish - have made Africans unhealthier and worse looked after medically, than the inhabitants of any other continent on earth.
