U.S. COMMITMENT TO GLOBAL CHILD SURVIVAL ACT
- Every year, 10 million children die before their fifth birthday – that’s one every three seconds – nearly all of them from preventable or treatable diseases, like diarrhea, pneumonia and measles.
- Worldwide, more than 500,000 mothers die each year from complications during child birth.
- There are inexpensive, effective interventions that would prevent the needless deaths of mothers and children in developing countries.
- For too long, poverty has devastated millions of families, but for the first time we have affordable and proven technology to deliver healthy babies and treat and prevent a range of childhood diseases.
