Why World Vision is in Angola
Angola is still recovering from a 27-year civil war that ended in 2002, with 1.5 million lost lives and millions more displaced. Subsistence agriculture in the main livelihood for most people. In 2015, food security progressively deteriorated caused by drought in the southern provinces. Rates of acute malnutrition rose among children. The public health system in Angola has not recovered from the war, with many people, especially in rural communities, unable to access health care of any kind. Polio, malaria, tuberculosis and tropical diseases are prevalent.
