UN Special Envoy Comments On Urgent Work Ahead To Reduce Child Mortality and Achieve Global Goals
Date:9/13/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2013

Statement from the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Financing the Health MDGs and For Malaria noting that despite great progress, we must accelerate pace by 4X to achieve MDG 4:

“Today UNICEF released its progress report on child mortality, Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed. This report delivers a sobering message that should reverberate across the global-health landscape: We must accelerate by four times the current pace of progress if we hope to achieve the Millennium Development Goal on Child Mortality, MDG 4, by December 31, 2015 and save the lives of 3.5 million more children whom we have no reason to lose.

"On the eve of the United Nations General Assembly, UNICEF’s report rouses us to the awareness that we have arrived at a singular moment, with 839 days remaining to change the course of child survival. We have made remarkable gains in recent years, with under-five mortality having declined from 12.6 million in 1990 to 6.6 million in 2012; however, the continuation of so much needless loss cannot represent victory. If we maintain on our current trend, we will not reach our goal until 2028, an unacceptable performance with far too many lives at stake.

"The UNICEF report underscores that most of these 6.6 million child deaths in 2012 were preventable, as they stem from such easily and affordably treated afflictions as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria and neonatal complications. In many ways, the simplicity of the problem guides us to the plan to solve it, as we must amplify the provision of life-saving interventions in key countries, lending essential support at every step.            

"There is much good news in the report, with some of the world’s poorest countries achieving some of the strongest gains in child mortality. Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania, Lib
