2-LDC versus MDC

Uganda, a poorly developed country dealing with starvation and mistreated children. Most of the children suffer from HIV/AIDS. Uganda is considered to be one of the most known carrier countries of these viruses. That is probably one of the main reasons why the population is much higher on the bottom of the pyramid than it is on the top. Children hardly have time to live after having the virus for so long. Even despite all thing, Uganda stills is showing a growing population. In fact, Uganda's population growth is threatening poverty reduction. So many people in one place can cause a whole lot of problems when it comes to poverty. Even though Uganda is an LDC, there are still hope for it in the future.

On the opposite end of the scale, there is Russia. Russia has pretty sufficiant resources and a large territory. Russia has been averaging a growth rate of 7% annually since its great financial crisis of '98. That means that Russia is growing and as you can see it has a large group of people living well into their sixties and seventies. Russia is home to many men, women, and children who have been abused in their lifetimes. In fact, Russia is known as a place of safety for these people. That is also a factor for why Russia has had a growth spurt over the past 10 years.
