Malaria. Pneumonia. Diarrhoea. Malnutrition. Measles. Complications from childbirth. These are some of the worst killers on earth.
But they shouldn’t be.
With proper health care and nutrition, they can be treated. With sufficient resources, they can often be prevented.
So why isn’t more being done? Why do millions of children still die from preventable diseases before their fifth birthday?
Take heart: Progress is being made. Since the U.N. Millennium Development Goals were released in 1990, child mortality has dropped by 35 percent worldwide. We have made great strides, but much more needs to be done.
For more than two decades, Medair’s teams of doctors and health professionals have been actively involved in the global effort to reduce child mortality—and to provide health care and nutrition services to families in remote and devastated communities.
