The purpose of this paper is to address the global dimensions of poverty, hunger, death, and disease.
The authors assemble the most recently available data on these four human scourges from reliable international sources.
Reducing the higher incidence of poverty, hunger, death, and disease in sub‐Saharan African countries depends critically on the extension of four revolutions – biological, intellectual, political, and scientific‐technological.
The paper selects and interprets these data from the perspectives of economics and paediatrics.
