Inequality is as bad for the rich as it is for the poor. Society is poorer as inequality becomes greater. (Friedman, 2011) The impacts of inequality shows up in poorer health, lower educational attainment, higher crime rates, lower spending of social capital, lower cooperation with and trust of government. (Friedman, 2011) On the other hand, inequality can also mean uneven distribution of wealth, which causes the poor to become even poorer. Poverty, hunger, homelessness, illiteracy, preventable disease, polluted air and water, and most of the other ills that beset humanity, have the same root cause: the inequitable distribution of planet’s wealth and resources.
This is where there is a large divide between rich and poor, with some South Africans living above the poverty line while others lives and incomes are worse than the general standard of living. Not only this, but certain South Africans also face absolute poverty, where they face lack of basic necessities, isolation from social activities, lack of information and hope, and fear for their children’s lives and futures due to poverty. In South Africa alone, 18 million children are affected by poverty and there is a 23.3% unemployment rate. These shocking figures emphasize the poor poverty situation South Africa faces. Sickness, no income and poor education all play large roles in poverty in South Africa.

The Government has failed to defend the more susceptible in society. A double attack on unemployment and persistent cuts has pushed people, families and communities towards poverty.
Since majority of the people are poor, they find it impossible to afford medical care in private hospitals. This results in high death rates especially among the poor and low income group. Increase in the number of deaths brings further hardships on families especially when the deceased was the ‘bread winner’ of the family. This sometimes results in children becoming victims of child labour and involvement in anti-social activities. The inefficiency in Nigeria’s health care system can be attributed to inadequate attention given to health care services delivery by the government.
