Global Child, Maternal Death Reduces – UN
The United Nations says thanks improved access to affordable, quality health services, the number of pregnant women or new mothers and young children who die each year has reduced.
In a statement on Thursday, Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of the World Health Organization said “In countries that provide everyone with safe, affordable, high-quality health services, women and babies survive and thrive.”
Since the turn of the century, the number of deaths among children under the age of five has been cut almost in half to some 5.3 million worldwide last year.
Almost half of those deaths occurred during the first month of life, meaning that around 7,000 newborns still died every single day last year.
