Last year, more than 7 million children died before they could see their fifth birthday. 40% of those deaths were newborn deaths, babies that died in their first month of life. Most of them are dying from preventable and treatable causes such as malnutrition, diarrhea and pneumonia. This is unacceptable. Basic nutrition and hygiene, vaccines, medicine, and access to frontline health workers who are trained to diagnose and treat these threats are essential to child survival. We know what works - now we need to make it a reality. Please call on world leaders to make a commitment to end preventable child deaths. Sign the petition.
