CRJS471-IP4NameClassDateProfessorWorld Health Organization Guyana is a Republic in South America with a population of 795,000 people. The capital of Guyana is Georgetown and the area is culturally diverse. In Guyana there are ten regions and 27 neighborhoods with councils. While a President runs the country each different neighborhood has tribal council that makes many of the decisions for people in the area. The official language of Guyana is English but there are several different Caribbean languages as well as the Guyanese language known as Guyanese Creole. The majority religion in the country is Christianity with most citizens being of the Catholic faith. Guyana's economy is dependent on agriculture with rice being a major crop but other industries, such as gold mining, fishing, and timber finance the country. The life expectancy of males in Guyana is 60 while for women it is 67 but the likelihood of dying between the ages of 15 and 60 is close to forty percent (WHO, 2013). The total expenditure on health per capita is $230 dollars which is a drastic difference from the United States which in the same year was almost nine thousand dollars. L
