The Challenge

Child
mortality is a core indicator for child health and well-being, in which
child survival remains an urgent concern. It is unacceptable that about
14,250 children die every day- equivalent to about 10 deaths occurring
every minute.

Majority
of these deaths can be attributed to treatable causes, infectious
diseases and neonatal complications being responsible for the vast
majority of under-five deaths globally. According to the latest
estimates by WHO and the Maternal and Child Epidemiology Estimation
Group, of the 5.2 million deaths in children under five that occurred in
2019, the leading causes of death were pneumonia, diarrhoea, and
malaria.

Almost half of all under-five deaths are attributable to
nutrition related factors, while more than 80 percent of neonatal deaths
occur among newborn infants of low birth weights in the highest burden
settings.
