The Global Health Report Card
Genetic engineering may be the least of the problems we face as the world health crisis explodes against the backdrop of our interdependent global villages. As one observer put it, “One man sneezes, another nation catches the flu.” Organizations such as the World Health Organization and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health Program offer us a challenging Global Health Report Card.
- Heart disease will be the leading cause of death in developing countries by 2010, representing 30 percent of all global deaths.
- Cancer (lung, breast, ovarian, prostate) causes 7 million deaths every year, or 12.5 percent deaths worldwide. By 2020 there will be 16 million new cancer cases.
- Tuberculosis takes a life every 18 seconds, causing more than 2 million deaths annually worldwide. TB is projected to be the cause of 35 million deaths between 2000 and 2020.
- Diabetes complications claim the lives of 3.2 million worldwide every year. In 2000, 171 million had diabetes. By 2030 diagnosed diabetes cases will rise to 366 million.
- Severe pneumonia and lower respiratory infection cause the death of 2 million children under age five annually. The global annual infection and mortality rate for RSV
(Respiratory Syncytial Virus) among infants and young children is 64 million.
- More than 40 million adults and children are living with HIV/AIDS, and almost 5 million new infections occurred in 2005. We HIV kills more than 3 million people every year, 99 percent of 100 them in developing countries.
Such sobering statistics underscore the necessity of the kind of advocacy supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health Initiative. The Gates Foundation recognizes that "advances in health too often fail to reach those who need them the most -- people in the poorest countries" -- and has taken decisive action to address such health inequalities.

African Americans make up only 13% of the population, but they accounted for over 50% of all U.S. HIV/AIDS cases in 2004.
Overweight and Obesity
African American men and women make up 69.3% of the overweight or obesity population in the United States.
About 70% of children in the United States will contract Respiratory Syncytin Virus (RSV) by the time they are one year old and nearly all children will have had it before they are two. For most, it's no worse than a common cold, but babies with high risk factors, RSV can lead to a serious lung infection, and is the leading cause of pneumonia and bronchitis in infants.
Hepatitis A &E
Both are water-borne viruses.
Is blood-borne and communicable. Of the 2 billion infected people, more than 350 million have chronic (lifelong) infections.
Around 3.2 million deaths every year are attributable to complications of diabetes; six deaths every minute. WHO estimates the number of people with diabetes, worldwide, in 2000 was 171 million and is likely to increase to at least 366 million by 2030.
WHO reports that the disease burden will increase to 60% by the year 2020; heart disease, stroke, depression, cancer will be the largest contributors.
