Namibia officially the Republic of Namibia is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean. Namibia has a population of 2.3 million people and a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the basis of its economy. The large, arid Namib Desert has resulted in Namibia being overall one of the least densely populated countries in the world.

The education system in Namibia needs improvement. The primary education enrollment rate is 89% ranking it 105th. The enrollment rate to secondary doesn't see the drop that many other African countries do at 64%. The quality of education is ranked 108th overall, ranking 105th in quality of Maths and Science.

Namibia has 343 hospitals and clinics, as well as 1,150 smaller service points. Healthcare facilities in the country are sophisticated but not always affordable to the poorer part of the population. Certain services like organ transplants are only available from private medical centers, putting them out of reach for the majority of Namibia's citizens

 

Namibia ranks fairly highly in availability of lastest technologies at 58th, however there is still quite a divide. It ranks 96th in ICT use with only 30% of the population as internet users. That number is growing with Namibia being ranked 62nd with 66 in 100 people mobile broadband subscriptions. namibia is ranked 112th for internet access in schools.
