How we can reduce poverty and inequality in developing countries?

I'm from Peru. A developing country. We are having a good perfomance in our economy, but we have to face a non resolved problem. One to 3 peruvians live on poverty conditions (see the link for wikipedia information bit.ly/17qs4Rw) .
How we can face this problem?

  • Oct 27 2013: Having a community with good health is a good way to start the fight against poverty. The government can help create better healthcare services that will be accessible and affordable to anyone who needs it. The system needs to be affordable, so that those who are in poverty can still take care of themselves and those who are sick will not go broke because of all their medical bills. However, just having a good healthcare system won't get people out of poverty alone. Getting an education is also very important. The government could also help with this by making education available to everyone who needs it. Equality is key here. Everyone needs an education to help themselves get out of poverty or to stay out of poverty. If everyone has an education it will set a higher standard of living for the country because once someone has an education, they will need a job. Yet one more way the government can get involved is by creating more well paying jobs. By doing so, many more citizens will be able to support their families and help themselves get out of poverty.
