According to watchtutorials, Malawi is a small country located in southeastern Africa, with a population of over 17 million people. The majority of the population is rural, with over 80% living in rural areas. Malawi has a diverse population, made up of several ethnic groups including Chewa, Nyanja, Lomwe, Yao and Tumbuka. The country also has a large urban population of over 5 million people. The official language is English, but many other languages are spoken throughout the country including Chichewa and Chitumbuka. The literacy rate in Malawi is estimated to be around 58%. Education is free and compulsory up to the age of 16. However due to poverty and lack of resources many children are unable to attend school or drop out before completing their education. Health care systems in Malawi are also limited due to lack of resources and infrastructure. The average life expectancy at birth is 56 years for men and 59 years for women. Malaria is one of the leading causes of death in the country with children under five being especially vulnerable. HIV/AIDS is also a major problem; it affects approximately 10% of adults aged 15-49 years old. Despite these challenges, Malawi has made great strides towards improvement by introducing programs such as free antiretroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS patients as well as initiatives to combat malaria and improve access to health care services for all citizens.
