While there have already been large reductions in child mortality since 2000, 6.3 million children under the age of five died in 2013. That’s 17,000 children dying a day from preventable causes, which is 17,000 too many.

If the best interventions are scaled up now,we could reduce child mortality by 2/3 by 2030.

Child mortality is just a wonky way of saying ‘kids dying’. Think of a child you know under 5. Now think of 17,000 such beautiful children dying every day, from causes we can prevent…why wouldn’t we stop that?
