It is common knowledge that healthcare sector around the world is experiencing turbulence due to the emergence of other disorders that have proved very difficult to control. Recent statistics indicate that most of the developed countries are using a significant proportion of their budget to deal with common disorders such as mental problems, cancer, and heart diseases. However, Isabel dos says that Africa is still struggling to deal with some diseases that would have been solved sometimes back. Malaria, Polio, and typhoid are some of the medical disorders that are affecting African kids and the African continent as a whole.
Isabel dos Santos wonders how the content will respond when cancer, mental health disorders, and heart diseases start to make inroads in various African countries. Isabel notes that there is very poor planning when it comes to health aspects in Africa. One of the leading causes of poor health planning is the fact that most of the African countries are still building basic infrastructure. This means that most of the resources are used to build the structures of the country rather than checking on the emerging aspects affecting society. This explains why a significant proportion of the budget goes to other expenses rather than solving the problems in the medical sector.
According to Isabel dos Santos notes that the issue of medication in Africa is complicated by the fact that there is no infrastructure. There are very few medical facilities in a specific region, which means that getting medical attention is always a complex aspect. There are also very few renowned medical experts who have been employed by the government to deal with medical issues across the country. Isabel notes that these trends should change and that more money should be invested in healthcare. On her part, Isabel dos Santos is significantly involved in children healthcare in Angola and other South African countries. She is mostly interested in good health of young kids because they are the future of the African continent. She pays attention to malaria, which is a tropical disease that has had significant impacts on the continent. Isabel notes that the continent should not only focus on infrastructure but also health.
