Major Causes of Mortality Deaths
Globally, it is estimated that out of every 10 deaths, 6 are due to Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs); 3 are due to communicable, reproductive or nutritional conditions; and 1 is due to injuries . In Kenya, mortality trends reflect a similar pattern. According to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) in 2016, the top leading causes of death were pneumonia, followed by malaria, cancer, HIV/AIDS, anemia, heart disease and lastly tuberculosis in that order, with contribution rates of 11%, 8%, 8%, 5%, 4% and 3% respectively. Generally, mortality rates have been on a downward trend with exception of deaths resulting from cancer, anemia and heart disease, reflecting a payoff from the major commitments by the Government towards reducing prevalence of diseases as articulated in the national policies .
Kenyans themselves don’t seem interested in improving their country. They don’t care enough to improve Kibera and Mathare and and Kahawa West and Donholm so why should others pretend you deserve better media coverage
