Health is a very crucial concern in today’s society. Despite the fact that new technologies have aided healthcare, yet the numbers are on the rise when it comes to diseases and deaths. What are the reasons for this? What are the numbers for this? Muslim-Science.com decided to conduct a pictorial analysis on the ‘Health of the Muslim World’, in order to asses where we stand in the health diaspora.

The analysis is based on a division of regions, each analyzed according to an indicator. The following are the regions identified:

1. South Asia

2. Sub-Saharan Africa

3. Europe/Central Asia

4. Latin America/Caribbean

5. East Asia/Pacific

6. Middle East/North Africa

 

Each of these regions are judged on the basis of the following 6 indicators:

1. Maternal mortality rate

2. Infant mortality rate

3. Adult mortality rate

4. Average life expectancy

5. Access to clean drinking water

6. Access to clean sanitation facilities
