Life Expectancy Grows

 Despite the customary bad news that usually emerges from Africa, this item is better news although there will be the eco-pessimists who will present it as a potential over-population problem.

Life expectancy is rising in Africa - with people living nearly 10 years longer, from 46 years to 56 years, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The rise is because of better access to health services in the continent although the numbers are "still well below the global average of 64 years", according to the health agency.
