Health Contribution to Global Poverty Index (%)

Poverty affects billions of people around the globe. On a daily basis, they face low wages and substandard health, education, and living standards. Because of this, poverty must be understood and approached as a multidimensional issue. The Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) acknowledges that poverty has many faces. The first dimension in the MIP is the Health dimension. This includes child mortality and nutrition. This map represents the percentage contribution of the health dimension to overall poverty. The lower percentages are shown in darker reds while the higher percentages are shown as brighter, lighter reds.
