Africa’s population will more than double to 2.4 billion within 40 years, thanks in large part to better healthcare, according to a major study.

Sub-Saharan Africa’s population is rising faster than the rest of the world because modern medicine and healthcare on the continent means more babies are surviving birth complications, and fewer adults are dying from preventable diseases. But the number of children being conceived is not dropping, or is doing so very slowly.
