Is There A Link Between Poverty And Educational Achievement?
In other words, because of the fact that poor people have limited accessibility to health services, they become more likely to open to various types of diseases. United Nation’s researches demonstrate concerning the poor kids that “almost 600 children died every day of AIDS-related causes in 2012” (UNDP, 2014).

After they get sick, recovery from that illness or disases become much harder for poor people in relative to others who have health insurance or money to see doctor by paying charges individually.
