The rural health clinic in Kumi Ongino is located at the end of a sandy road about 7 km from the city of Kumi. The clinic is a snapshot of the challenges facing Africa - 60 percent of Africans live without electricity, and although the continent bears a quarter of the global disease burden, health care spending is only 1 percent of the total in the world, according to a recent report from McKinsey. But the prognosis is improving. Governments in the region invest in health care infrastructure and reforms. It is not an easy solution. Experience has shown that what works in American hospitals will not work in Africa. At least 40 percent of hospital equipment in Africa is out of service due to a lack of spare parts and training for healthcare professionals. This is comparable to just 1 percent of the equipment in high-income countries.
