These three factors show the debilities of the less developed parts of the world. A low life expectancy, infant mortality and child mulnutrition occure from bad life conditions and appear increased in Asia and Africa. In conclusion can be said: The bad situations and their impacts, in these regions define the development gap of this world quite well. The intensity of each impact can be taken from the graphs.
