A major increase in the population growth rate began after World War II and it is now running at an annual rate of per cent, resulting in massive demands for agricultural land, water, fuelwood and other products. There is no simple answer to environmental degradation and forest conservation must be part.

Consistent estimates of cause-specific mortality are essential for understanding the overall epidemiological profile of disease in a population.
