Fishing provides a major source of protein for much of the world's population. Throughout history, cities and villages have grown up near sources of water, for drinking, sustenance, and transportation. … Water-bourne diseases remain a significant source of mortality in many developing countries.' Health Crisis :  Health Crisis 'Advances in health, sanitation, and nutrition have more than doubled longevity worldwide. The major causes of death throughout history -- smallpox, flu, cholera, tuberculosis, malaria, plagues, and measles -- have been virtually eliminated as serious threats in industrialized nations. Yet, influenza, HIV-AIDS, diarrhea diseases, tuberculosis, measles, and malaria remain primary killers in Africa and other developing regions. Many of these diseases are related to poor environmental practices, including land and water use. Water-bourne diseases are estimated to cause 5 million deaths a year, particularly affecting children and the elderly. Schistosomiasis is believed to have arisen in the last few decades because of irrigation practices in hot climates.' Environmental Literacy Council Health Crisis Contd:  Health Crisis Contd 'Sub-Saharan Africa is undergoing a serious health crisis. It is currently one of only two regions in the world in which longevity is declining (the other is Russia). One million people die of malaria each year; ninety percent of these deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. In fact, five percent of all children in this region die of malaria. Seventy percent of all cases of HIV-AIDS occur in Sub-Saharan Africa.' Environmental Literacy Council Water:  Water Who does the water fetching? Water:  Water Who does the water fetching?
