    The Gross National Product (GNP) in Namibia accounted for 2,210 US$ in 1997, well above average GNP in Sub-Saharan-Africa (480) and Lower-middle income countries (1,710). However, Namibia’s income distribution is one of the most unequal in the world. In 1996 AIDS overtook tuberculosis as the main killer disease. There were 1,539 registered deaths from AIDS in 1998, compared with 847 from TB and 723 from malaria, which is endemic in the north. The epidemic has dramatically reduced averaged life e xpectancy from 57 years in 1990 to 50 in 1998 and is expected to decrease to 46.5 in 2000.The Infant Mortality Rate was 63 per 1000 life births in 1995. In 1995-98, 85% of one year old infants were immunised for TB, 74% for DPT, 74% for Polio and 63% for measles. The maternal mortality rate reached 230 per 100,000 life births. Data collected in 1991 revealed that only 43% of the rural population could access safe water supply while less than 20% had toilets.

    Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) and micronutrient deficiencies remain the leading nutritional problems in the Philippines. The general declining trend in the prevalence of underweight (Map 3), stunting (Map 4) and wasting (Map 5) among Filipino children noted in the past 10 years was countered with the increase in the prevalence rate in 1998. About 4 million (31.8%) of the preschool population were found to be underweight-for-age, 3 million (19.8%) adolescents and 5 million (13.2%) adults, inc luding older persons were found to be underweight and chronically energy deficient, respectively (Table 4a, 4b & 4c).

    For children under 3 years the prevalence of underweight was 15.5% in 1994. 21.4% of the children were stunted and 5.5% wasted (Table 4a). Children living in rural areas seemed to have a greater risk for underweight and stunting then their urban counterparts. The prevalence of underweight ranged from 7.1% in Bulawayo to 24% in Matabeleland North (Map 2). The prevalence of wasting ranged from 1.9% in Mashonaland East to 9.8% in Matabeleland North (Map 4). Matabeleland North, known to be dry and d rought prone also exhibited the highest prevalence of stunting (28.5%). The distributions of underweight, wasting and stunting almost coincide with the exception of the provinces Mashonaland Central and Matabeleland South, which show a greater risk for stunting than for wasting and underweight (Map 3).
