We must practice revolutionary democracy in every aspect of our Party life. Every responsible member must have the courage of his responsibilities, exacting from others a proper respect for his work and properly respecting the work of others. Hide nothing from the masses of our people. Tell no lies. Expose lies whenever they are told. Mask no difficulties, mistakes, failures.

Amilcar Cabral

The social situation is still precarious. Guinea-Bissau has a very low score (0.364) on the worldwide Human Development Index (HDI) and ranks 176 out of 185 countries surveyed in the 2013 report. Per capita GDP was US$614 in 2010, and more than two-thirds of the population was living on less than US$2 a day and 33 per cent on less than one dollar a day. The country showed an HDI average annual growth between 2000 and 2010 of 0.9 per cent, compared with 2.1 per cent for sub-Saharan Africa and 1.68 per cent for very low-ranking countries.
