WHAT WILL YOU DO?
To Change It !


 
     
   
     
   The estimated total costs to achieve universal access to basic social services in all developing countries:  
 
Basic education for all 6 Billion
Water and sanitation for all 9 Billion
Reproductive health for all women 12 Billion
Basic health and nutrition 13 Billion
 
   
  About 29,000 children under the age of five –  21 each minute – die every day, mainly from preventable causes.  
   
  Two-thirds of deaths occur in just 10 countries.  
   
  Among deaths in children, South-central Asia has the highest number of neonatal deaths, while sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates.  
   
  An Ethiopian child is 30 times more likely to die by his or her fifth birthday than a child in Western Europe.  
   
  Some of the deaths occur from illnesses like measles, malaria or tetanus. Others result indirectly from marginalization, conflict and HIV/AIDS.  Malnutrition and the lack of safe water and sanitation contribute to half of all these children’s deaths.  
   
  2.5 billion people lack access to improved sanitation  
   
  But disease isn’t inevitable, nor do children with these diseases need to die.  
   
  Research and experience show that six million of the almost 11 million children who die each year could be saved by low-tech, evidence-based, cost-effective measures such as vaccines, antibiotics, micronutrient supplementation, insecticide-treated bed nets and improved family care and breastfeeding practices  
   
  1 billion children are deprived of one or more services essential to survival and development  
   
  148 million under 5s in developing regions are underweight for their age  
   
  101 million children are not attending primary school, with more girls than boys missing out  
   
  4 million newborns worldwide are dying in the first month of life  
   
  22 million infants are not protected from diseases by routine immunization  
   
  More than 70 per cent of almost 11 million child deaths every year are attributable to six causes: diarrhoea, malaria, neonatal infection, pneumonia, preterm delivery, or lack of oxygen at birth.
