African Geographic Health issues African countries suffer severely from the most common three diseases: yellow fever, aids and malaria.

Malaria is a fatal disease that kills millions of Africans every year. The majority of people, who die from this, are children. This is because their bodies are not tough enough to withstand it. Malaria is spread through infected mosquitoes.

Yellow fever is disease that is found in warm, tropical areas of the world. Like malaria it is spread by mosquitoes.
