North Korea: 34.6
Afghanistan is very close to being on this list*, and neither Syria nor Haiti are that high either. Not sure why North Korea is so high, but they are well known for falsifying their statistics (for example, they claim to have a 100% literacy rate).
*Which is terrifying not just because it's low but also because it means most Afghans who had some freedom under the US-backed government are too young to have been alive whenever the Taliban first ruled. Now none of those people have futures to look forward to and may spend the rest of their lives (or at least a very long time) with absolutely no freedom. I know this is unrelated to the rest of the conversation, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
The country with the lowest life expectancy in Africa is CAR, at 52.8 years, and the highest life expectancy in sub-Saharan, mainland Africa is Botswana at 69.3 years. The overall life expectancy for Africa is 62 for males and 65 for females, versus the global life expectancy of 70 for males and 75 for females.
