1 Challenge and Solution

  1. In the 1990's the Standard of living was Dropping

2 Challenge and Solution

  1. Hospitals are low on certain things and the ones in Lima are very expensive
  • The hospitals in Lima should not be very expensive. Also they should send out people to get the stuff that they need like the medicine, food, etc;.
