Poverty includes living standards, the inability to achieve basic necessities due to unavailability of nutrition, clean drinking water, proper sanitation, healthcare, health care and other social services. Ultimately, 9.9% of the world lives on less than $2 a day. A third of the urban population resides in a shanty town, which is a crowded city that is dangerous and has hazardous houses. About 1,85 billion persons, or 36% of the global population, are living below the poverty line. To this extent, those who experience poverty can often feel a lack of control over their own conditions and economic conditions. Millions of people may have a lowered comprehension of their own potential.


Easier access to healthcare services, particularly for the poor, has contributed to El Salvador’s ability to reduce mortality. As well in education, literacy rates have risen, with the most significant advances in urban areas. Crime and violence makes businesses more costly. They negatively impact investment decisions and jeopardize job creation. El Salvador produces only 30,000 jobs per year on average, while 40,000 workers are desired every year just to provide work for those entering the labor market. El Salvador’s Country Partnership Framework (CPF) was approved in June 2015 and is focused on two pillars: constructing foundations for economic progress and ensuring stability and durability. We want to make sure the economy stays in good conditions through hard times. Strengthening Public Health Care System Project has been advocating the growth of the National Health Care Services System in the country’s 82 poorest areas. Then, more than 1,300 pregnant women and 14,000 children under the age of 3 obtained parental and childcare services during the introduction of the initiative.Around 85,000 individuals also benefited immensely from immunization vaccines.


Countries should have a steady level of income that allows individuals to buy what they need. We should implement a separate non-profit organization to all countries that are able to raise funds in case of any issues in poverty. Since trading is the key to progress and well-being in a subtle way, nations need to encourage economies to engage in trade as a way out of poverty. Countries should see what other countries are in need of and support each other through hard times. Nations need to provide access to social services for all residents, including schooling, health care, adequate food, hygiene, housing and clean water to make sure poverty and mortality rates don’t escalate.
