It will dissect the South African situation, their current situation, the possible cause and how to improve on the trend. It will look at the adverse effects of low life expectancy in Nigeria and, by extension, South Africa, and with the backings of theoretical framework, attempt to proffer a solution to their dire situations in their individual countries.
