This map was created by Globalpost , based on the data from World Health Organization. As you can see, heart diseases are the most common death causing illnesses in Europe, followed by throat and lung cancer. At the same time in Africa and a number of countries in South and North America the majority of deaths are being caused by HIV and tuberculosis.

What measures can be implemented to reduce this index? Heart diseases are still hard and expensive to treat but they can be prevented. Do you have an idea of public campaigh raising the awareness to this problem? 

Dear Europeans, have a great weekend and take care of yourselves!
