In addition, poverty is defined as the lack of housing and the minimum necessary food to sustain a good life. Extreme poverty, including food and clothing, is called absolute poverty. In the United States of America, for example, a large number of people living in poverty are living in poverty
There are many causes of poverty in the world. While some of these causes can be fully addressed by the application of certain measures, the elimination of basic and fundamental causes remains a critical challenge worldwide. Changing economic trends, lack of access to education, epidemic diseases, corruption, overcrowding, environmental problems and the culture of poverty are the main causes of poverty. There are also a number of social consequences in this section (90-102)
The effects of poverty, as well as its sociological effects, are widespread and highly unfavourable to the populations of many countries of the world. Those who grow in poverty face serious, persistent and recurrent health problems compared with those who grow in areas with low poverty levels. In addition, many children born in poor environments tend to experience physical, mental and low birth weight problems
Many infants also die before they are born, and for those born, they end up severely affected by high levels of poverty. Similarly, descendants who were born in a poor position often missed school because of the problems associated with the disease. Moreover, people from poor families are known to have a high rate of accidents than wealthy families (105-110)
On the other hand, social well-being can be defined as the prosperity, health and general well-being of the people of the country. It represents the most important values on which society can be built. It also aims to ensure that people are aware of the most ideal ways to improve the quality of life. Social welfare programmes aim to improve the goals and values that support the way of life in society
The impact of such programmes is to improve and improve the quality of life by initiating programmes aimed at improving the quality of life and by providing quality education and health programmes. Social welfare programmes can also be implemented on the basis of social policies aimed at achieving the goals and objectives of improving the quality of life of the citizens of a given country
Social policy means activities, guidelines, legislation and principles that affect the way of life or living conditions and affect human well-being. It also analyses the response of society to the social needs of people. In addition, it focuses on issues affecting society, politics and the economy, among such factors, which are very important to the lives of people and how they are accessible
Policies define the access and distribution of goods, as well as resources in the country, to promote equality for all (Whitman 28-100)
In Canada, poverty remains high and general. The poverty rate is high among the world’s richest countries. Canada is experiencing a decline in poverty in the recent past, and some of the programmes used in the country to assist citizens are being developed by the Government on the basis of what the country market can provide
In addition, Canada has a high level of public transfer payments to citizens and amounts to more than $176.9 billion. SCHA. Moreover, the Government has taken the initiative to finance public education and Medicare for its people as a policy measure to help reduce poverty and improve the quality of life (World Development Indicators 58)
All provinces in Canada provide public and universal health services to their citizens. These services are particularly important for citizens who cannot afford the high cost of medicines. There are other social programs subsidized by the federal authorities of Canada. The provinces are also responsible for ensuring that children have access to quality education
Education in Canada is under 16 years of age. In both the country and the primary education system, there is a normal cost to ensure that many citizens can afford it. Similarly, the federal Government in the country provides social protection systems and facilities to students and the elderly. All these steps are aimed at reducing the poverty rate in the country (108-1588)

Bangladesh also has 48 per cent of children suffering from malnutrition. The country is also characterized by high levels of corruption, overcrowding, insufficient electricity, poor roads, overcrowding and political instability. Economic growth in Bangladesh is also low, between 5 and 6 per cent per annum. The country also remains overcrowded, poorly managed and poor (198)

More than 45 per cent of Bangladesh’s inhabitants rely on agriculture as a means of livelihood. In addition, it lacks social security workers who can help improve the lives of their citizens. The Government of Bangladesh also has a limited social policy that can be continued to ensure an even distribution of resources among staff (200-289)
