Life Expectancy

While citizens in Spain, Japan, Singapore, and Switzerland can expect to live above the age of 85, average life expectancy for Lesotho, Somalia, Zimbabwe and the Central African Republic will be almost 30 years lower.

Dr Christopher Murray, director of the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at Washington University, explained, “In a substantial number of countries, too many people will continue earning relatively low incomes, remain poorly educated, and die prematurely."
