    Birth and death rates are generally high in poor countries with low literacy rates. Do you think Kenya will be among the developed countries in 100 years? Why?

    As health services increase, so does the amount of people. But you'll have to research to see if Kenya is getting more hospitals in isolated locations, or if their current ones are getting shut down because of lack of funds. Maybe search for "healthcare system in Kenya" to see how it has changed, and how it will most likely change. But keep in mind, regardless the amount of hospitals or doctors offices, Kenya's AIDS rate is increasing, which means a sizable portion of its population is getting killed type into a search engine "Kenya's AIDS rate" and you'll get an idea for how it is affecting their population. From there, you can make your hypothesis.
