Life Expectancy in Africa: Improving Public Health Policy provides readers with a comprehensive analysis of life expectancy in Africa and proposes avenues for improving public health policy on the African continent. The book studies the period between 1960 and 2015. To a large extent, the author offers an understanding of the changes of life expectancy at birth across regions and time in Africa to inform public policy decisions. The author relied on primary source data over the 1960-2015 period from The World Bank, Barro and Lee, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Adu Frimpong adopted exploratory spatial data analysis, which included spatio-temporal and spatial regression procedures. Adu Frimpong argues that the spatial spillover of major armed conflicts (or wars) does not only affect a country’s life expectancy at birth, but it also affects the life expectancy at birth of other neighboring countries. Above all, this book contends that the African continent suffers substantial losses in overall life expectancy of its citizenry from cradle to the grave. The continent experiences major armed conflicts — often in the form of civil wars — unabated to the detriment of the citizens of all its nations.
