Thanks for your reply. You are correct in that a majority of the world does not have access to even a reasonable degree of healthcare. Many not even basic human rights.

Some simple questions:

1. Where is the data and the analysis that identifies those places & people?

2. Where is the analysis that identifies the specific problems for each group of people?

I believe there is a major cultural problem that puts all these issues into one overwhelming issue that remains unsolved.

Does someone in India dying from a lack of oxygen provide a suitable excuse for an appalling managerial neglect in Melbourne?

If high income countries can't do quality right, why would we expect LMIC to achieve any better?
