  • 30. What We Know
    • Everyday 26,000 children die from malnutrition and preventable diseases worldwide.
    • The leading causes of death for children under 5 are:
      • malnutrition,
      • malaria,
      • vaccine-preventable diseases,
      • pneumonia, and
      • diarrhea .
    • We know that simple tools like mosquito nets, vitamin A capsules, immunization, and antibiotics can help children reach their 5 th birthday.
  • 31. Survive Five Partners
    • World Vision is partnering with:
      • Members from 12 Tanzanian communities
      • Canadian International Development Agency, who will provide life-saving commodities
      • Local partners such as the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Agriculture and UNICEF
  • 32. Survive Five Source: World Vision Canada Access to ORS Oral rehydration replenishes the fluids and salts lost through illness. Diarrhea is common where there are shortages of clean water and poor hygiene practices. Diarrhea Healthcare worker training and timely referrals. Antibiotics allow health facilities to treat diseases and training helps staff recognize infections. Pneumonia is the 2nd most common cause of child mortality in Africa. Pneumonia Regular vaccination throughout communities and improved cold storage of vaccines. Immunization controls disease like polio, measles and tuberculosis. For instance, Measles contributes to 9% of child deaths in some countries. Vaccine Preventable Diseases Community education Bed nets protect children from mosquitoes. Malaria kills one-fifth of children who die before the age of five. Malaria Vitamin A distribution twice a year in partnership with the Ministry of Health. Vitamin A, proper breast feeding and nutritious local food support proper growth. For more than 50% of the children who die before age five, malnutrition is a contributing factor. Malnutrition Five Community Supports Five Solutions Five Threats
  • 33.
    • More than one half of all child deaths in developing countries are due to just five communicable diseases and malnutrition. Below are the causes of 10.5 million deaths among children under five in developing countries (1999). Malnutrition is a common link in these diseases and it increases the likelihood of child illness.

  • 36. In Tanzania…
    • A Survive Five pilot project was funded by the Canadian government (Canadian International Development Agency). The pilot was conducted from January 2005 to February 2006.
      • 54,580 children under five participated in the pilot project.
      • 34,000 insecticide treated mosquito nets were distributed. Now almost 70% of the households in the pilot project area have bed nets.
  • 37. In Tanzania…
    • Through Survive Five , World Vision was able to increase participation in national immunization campaigns from 45% to 83%.
    • World Vision’s connection to the community members helped staff members recognize the barriers that prevented families from bringing their children to immunization events.
    • Most notable, World Vision supported mobile clinics for families that lived in remote areas.
  • 38. Project Tanzania 2009
    • Project Tanzania 2009 was born from Kristle & Michael’s desire to build community and healthy futures for children. Together they wanted to transform the celebration of their upcoming wedding into a powerful and lasting legacy.
    • Kristle & Michael travelled to Tanzania in August 2009 to visit their sponsored child, Miriamu, learn about her community, and provide educational supplies to her primary school. They wanted to learn first-hand about the needs of children in Tanzania.
    • They learned there is no greater need or better gift than health.
    • Your generous contributions will support a widespread implementation
    • of the Survive Five Program in Tanzania to create health
    • and a future for all children.
