Human Development Index : Life expectancy of Togolese people augmented by three years since 2010

(Togo First) - From 1990 to 2018, Togo’s human development index (HDI) soared by 26.6%, from 0.405 to 0.513. This is disclosed in the recent Human development report released by the UN Development Program (PNUD). 

Over the same period, Togolese people had their life expectancy rise by 4.9 years. In 2010-2017 alone, their life expectancy rose by three years. Meanwhile, GDP per capita improved by 22.4%. 

In spite of the improvements, the country still has room for progress. Indeed, compared to the previous edition of the PNUD report, Togo’s rank fell two places. It is this year the 167th over 189 countries.

The country is listed under the category of nations with a “low” HDI, alongside others such as Seychelles, Rwanda, Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, and Ethiopia. However, Togo’s HDI is higher than the average in this category (which is 0.507).
