The Burden/Promise of Highly Populated Countries

No surprised that the giant India and China have a large burden.  In Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria makes up a pretty significant part of the female deaths with the DRC additionally a large contributor.  This is really terrible news, but also can be seen as positive.  It means that specific solutions can be directed towards these four countries that will be able to address this problem.  On the other side of the coin, it means that there is a long way to go in some places and it is really depressing when thinking of what can be done in the DRC.
