Brazil was considered of the future superpowers during its formative years. It presented great opportunities for growth. The business environment favored investment that would see the nation develop to a great resourceful nation. However, due to economic, social and political setbacks, Brazil is categorized under the developing economies. The country’s population is too high to be controlled by the government. This has led to several problems such as unemployment, inadequate social amenities and poor infrastructure. The 2014 World Cup is aimed at helping rebuild the Brazilian economic status.
There are several problems facing the Brazilian population, which include the following
- The government gives little money to family planning organizations
- Low funding of education sector leading to rampant teacher strikes
- Hospitals lack facilities to handle post-natal service provision
- Slightly above half of the population can access safe drinking water
- The aging population are more than the young population can cater for them, but the government has not put up proper schemes to cater for them
- High HIV/AIDS prevalence
- Girls give birth at tender ages
- There is a high population growth rate
- The government should provide funds for family planning organizations. If every individual is given 1 dollar, then the government would spend $170 per year on this venture leading to controlled births
- Increase teachers’ salary for them to meet the rising living standards thereby ending the strikes. This would lead to increased literacy levels, which would in turn increase enrolment into schools, consequently reducing the number of girls getting pregnant at tender ages
- Increased funding in the Brazilian hospitals on post-natal facilities leads to increased infant mortality rates
- Safe drinking water is paramount for citizens. The government should increase funding of modern water filtration facilities
- The aging population require a funding scheme that would reduce the burden on the youth
- Health education should be encouraged to reduce the rate of HIV/AIDS infection and transmission.
The organizational strategy that could be used to implement these solutions include using NGO’s to educate the public and enacting budget legislations supporting the appropriation of funds to the departments responsible implementing the proposed changes. The general ideas learned in this case is that developing nations such as Brazil have several challenges that relate to financial and population growth rates. In conclusion, the government should seek to address the problems people face in Brazil in order to improve the living standards of the citizens.
