Kenya's sick hospitals

July 04, 2009

Re "Hospitals as debtors' prisons," June 28

Keeping women who can't pay their hospital bills in virtual lock-up at the hospital itself would seem to be counterproductive. It costs the hospital and deprives the women of any chance of income-earning. Kenya is on its way to a population disaster. This will exacerbate the challenges of reducing poverty and of providing education, health, energy, food, water and stability to its people, particularly to its women.

Problems from continuing overpopulation continue to grow faster than society and science can address them.
