These rights include: freedom from discrimination, freedom from want, for a decent standard of living, freedom to develop and realise one's human potential, freedom from fear for personal security, freedom from injustice, freedom of participation, speech and association and freedom for decent work, without exploitation. From this angle, poverty is a condition characterised by serious deprivation of basic rights and needs in terms of food, nutrition, water, health, shelter, education, and a lack of opportunities to change the situation.(the tables in appendix one states the difference between Sudan and India how the millennium targets are rising and falling.) From an economic point of view, poverty is the chronic shortage of resources to meet basic needs. From a social point of view, poverty is the lack of access to good health, good education, safe water and sanitation and nutrition. From an institutional point of view, poverty is the lack of institutions safeguarding the respect and promotion of human rights, obligations and commitments. Sudan's high fertility rate itself exacerbates the poverty problem due to demands that the rapidly growing population places on a fragile ecological base. From a socio-economic perspective, the manifestations of poverty in Sudan are clear: * High infant and maternal morbidity and mortality rates * High rates of malaria, diarrhoea and acute respiratory diseases * High rate of malnutrition * High rate of illiteracy and low level of education * High unemployment rate * Decreasing immunisation coverage and frequent outbreaks of epidemics * Large percentage of chronically resource poor households * 4 million IDPs and 300,000 refugees * Gender inequalities * Poor respect for basic human rights The poor are caught in a web of interrelationships between the various determinants of poverty. Malnutrition and poor drinking water exacerbate infant mortality and a low level of education reduces the chances of sufficiently paid employment. This diminishes the opportunities for enhancing family income, reduces access to fee-based health services and, forces families to use contaminated water, which exposes them to water-related diseases. ...read more.
