Product Description

Cape Town suffered the divisions of apartheid for 50 years. A tenth of its citizens still live in impoverished conditions in slums that lack piped water, sewerage and electricity, and have high rates of infectious diseases. Infant mortality rates in the slums are twice those in other parts of the city. HIV/AIDS is also a serious concern. Water provision is a constant problem, with water use having to be restricted. Cape Town, however, is tackling its problems - it has in place an 'Integrated Development Plan' that by 2020 aims to have a 100 per cent improvement in literacy, poverty and life expectancy at birth.
