THE PROBLEM The problem I am facing about my countries is terrible medical care. This is a problem because the life expectancy of my countries is 57 years old, the infant mortality per 100,000 is 69.2, the birth rate per 100,00 is 32,and there are only 9 doctors per 100,000. A minor problem is education, we only have a literacy rate of 61.1%.
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS• 1.Send educated Sudanese people to medical school in the U.S, and when they are finished they come back to Sudan.• 2.Make a deal with Ethiopia where Sudan & South Sudan sell some of their oil for money, give the money to Ethiopia to build schools, and in return Ethiopia gives us 20 of their finest doctors and 1 medical school.• 3.Do nothing and hope there are more doctors in Sudan and South Sudan
Solution # 1 2 3Pros The doctor can Ethiopia gets We don’t have teach others schools and to do anything Sudan gets doctorsCons May not have None May not work enough money to send the people
FINAL SOLUTIONThe final solution to my problem is to use solution 1 & 2. I choose #1 because each doctor can teach others to become doctors. I choose solution #2 because it helps Ethiopia with their education problem and it helps us with our medical problems so everyone wins.
