The world has many problems, especially when it comes health, given how many epidemics there are and how many appear every year, so we decided it was best to check out which were the 10 biggest health problems in the world in 2016.
Some global health threats pop up without as much as a warning, while others have been there for a long time and a proper solution hasn’t yet been found. These health issues are some that need to be resolved, the sooner the better, problems that if left unresolved could cause quite a few problems on a much larger scale.
Over the years there have been multiple outbreaks, including for diseases such as Ebola or, this year, Zika, which was so big at the time that it has been included in the 10 Biggest Headlines of 2016 as well. Some of those outbreaks come out of nowhere, take the world by storm, die down a bit but not always completely. We took a look at IntraHealth International who published a list at the beginning of the year regarding big health issues that threaten the world this year and checked to see what had happened over the months that have passed.
So, without further ado, here are the 10 biggest health problems in the world in 2016.
