  3. 3. Intr oduc tion <ul><li>In 1965 Uganda and South Korea were at about the same point on the developing nation scale, yet today South Korea is a strong, industrial nation, while Uganda is poverty-stricken and poor. I am going find why and how Uganda is such a poor country, we are going to be looking specifically at the education and the healthcare in Uganda. </li></ul><ul><li>My research has came mostly from the internet and my teacher, Miss Elliott, also helped me.

  4. 4. Aim 1 How Good is Education in Uganda?
  5. 5. Aim 1 – Education in Uganda <ul><li>On successful completion of the primary school cycle, one can either join lower secondary school or take a three-year craft course in a technical school. However, only about 40% of the primary school graduates are involved into the secondary cycle, which means that there are fewer schools than available students. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Aim 1 – Education in Uganda <ul><li>The demand for pre-primary education is still low and only about 10% of the total school going children pass through pre-primary schools. </li></ul><ul><li>The demand for primary education has radically increased with the introduction in 1997 of free primary education for four children in every family. </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary education has witnessed a growth of over 20% in the number of government-aided secondary schools over the last 10 years </li></ul><ul><li>Between 9,000 and 12,000 students per year qualify to join post-secondary education. However, only about 25% of these are involved in post-secondary institutions </li></ul>

There were nearly 1 million orphans as a result of HIV/AIDS, that is 50% of all orphans. It is estimated that every year 14,000 children die as a result of HIV/AIDS and that every day 40 children are infected. Uganda was hit very hard by the outbreak of the HIV/AIDS Disease in East Africa. In the early 1990s, 13% of Ugandan residents had HIV. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Aim 2 – Healthcare in Uganda <ul><li>As a developing country, health indicators in Uganda delay behind the rest of the world. Life expectancy at birth in Uganda is around 49 years. Child mortality (death before the age of 5 years) occurred in 140 of every 1000 births. 5 people in a class of 33 will not live to see there 5 th Birthday. </li></ul>

Aim 2 – Healthcare in Uganda <ul><li>There are about 8 hospitals in the whole of Uganda </li></ul><ul><li>There is 1 doctor for every 25,000 people. </li></ul><ul><li>In Uganda a child is 20x times more likely to die than a child in Scotland. </li></ul><ul><li>Uganda Has the highest record of aids orphans in Uganda; approximately 1.3million </li></ul>
