Debt

UNESCO publishes a report which estimates that about 500,000 children die every year from Debt Repayment. Debt Repayment is due to commercial banks in the richer Western countries having made loans to poorer countries (often with unelected dictatorial governments). The interest paid on the loans does not allow the debtor countries to provide public services for their populations.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 11,000,000 children die every year from easily treatable diseases. The WHO has called this "a silent genocide."
