Wow. Just… Wow.

Came across this article on the best and worst countries for a child to fall sick in.  Basically, if a child is sick is there anyone available to provide medical attention & are the mothers able/willing to get the proper vaccinations to ensure their child will live.

Here’s the top & bottom of the study:
