Poverty is the main problem for people in Ethiopia. Most of the people in Ethiopia, suffer from hunger and famine. There are no enough food and people cannot feed their families easily. All of these poverty problems are related to backward agriculture and drought. Agriculture is one of the basic source of food and people depend on the agricultural products in Ethiopia, but it is very back
Because of poverty people of Africa remain hungry as they don’t have enough money to buy their food and their basic needs. Some of the African countries have less poverty rate than others due to good government and economic system in those countries. Most of the African is facing challenges to survive and keep their family healthy. Education is another factor which is the main cause of this poverty and many more other problems. Lack of education in Africa is due to lack of schools and education facilities.

On the south western border sits South Sudan and Sudan covers the north western border (Ofcansky and Berry). Much of Ethiopia is covered by highlands, plateaus and mountains and with this country’s climate is categorized as primarily H with some subcategories of B on the Köppen system (Attoh). The Western Highlands and Eastern Highlands that consume most of Ethiopia are dissected by the Eastern Rift Valley that slices through from the northeast to the southwest. The highlands here are classified as H climates which means that they experience temperate climates and dry winters. The highlands here can receive up to 80 inches of rainfall a year and average temperatures in the low 60s F (Brittanica.com).
Most of the HIV is seen in cities and in younger women (Britannica, 2010). Although the economy of Ethiopia has grown a lot, hunger and poverty still remains prevalent. Many of the people have no supply of clean water, education, or healthcare. Organizations like UNICEF, Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET), Medecins San Frontieres (MSF), and other organizations have been a great help to this country. With donations and medical assistance from these organizations Ethiopia can make its way out of being a third world country.
Macionis (2011), states human beings in absolute poverty lack nutrition necessary for health and long term survival (p.251). People living in poverty are more likely to lack the proper nutritional foods and become severely malnourished. This unfortunately will lead to the death of many people, sadly. The amount of families living under poverty levels are subjected to an insufficient amount of food and water in order to sustain them so they have the ability to live a healthy long life.
Poverty has a great impact on society as a whole. Poverty takes away the ability for someone to gain its benefits. Poor people tend to have poor medical care and more than 1/3 of the population lack health insurance. At times people may be uninsured, causing them to have less access to any preventive care, treatment, overall care or any diagnostic services. The poor are usually more likely to die from infectious diseases because of their lack of health care.
Poverty is one of the biggest problems that the world faces in present time. The poverty that takes place in more underdeveloped countries such as Kenya, Africa, is majorly affecting the citizens because of the diseases that are being spread throughout the entire state, the lack of medical supplies that is needed for each doctor, and unsanitary water and a very insufficient amount of food. The health and well being of the citizens of Kenya, Africa is horrific, many of the diseases that are spread are very severe which can sooner or later lead to death. With Kenya’s many water sources, Kenya has a high rate of water-borne diseases. Most of these water-borne diseases are not found in developed countries because of the sophisticated water systems that filter and chlorinate water to eliminate all disease carrying organisms.
The shorter period from November to December is known as “the short rains”, where rainfall occurs intermittently and may last into January. The rest of the country experiences one wet season from November to May. Since Tanzania is located in the Southern hemisphere, December to March can be considered the country’s summer, and June to September its winter. The seasons are “in fact the transition between the two main trade wind systems which dominate at different times of the year; the northeasterly trades between December and March, and the southeasterlies between June and September” (Sumner 53-66). Caused by the highly cyclic weather patterns of the intertropical convergence zone, these trade winds are the main factor in determining the change of seasons and are abetted by the very geography of Tanzania.
In Africa, people survive on using less than one dollar and twenty five cents per day. If they provide the everyday materials to survive with as little as one twenty five, those people are not treating themselves with the proper needs they need to survive. Ninety percent of the world’s people are chronically malnourished but they also have a lack of food supply (Sanchez 357). This is important because people play a huge amount on today’s society, if they die the world will never be the same. Not only is it hard for people to survive with little money but also with very little access to food, the odds of living a healthy lifestyle are very low.
