  3. 3. • Despite progress, deaths of children under five remain unacceptably high • In 2006 annual deaths among children under five dipped below 10 million • It is different in a developing country rather than in an industrialized country • Disparities persist in all regions
  4. 4. • The leading causes of childhood deaths are easily prevented through simple improvements in basic health services and proven interventions • Undernutrition is estimated to be an underlying cause in more than one third of all deaths in children under five
  5. 5. • There are methods that provide safe, lifelong protection • The second-dose coverage has reduced global deaths from measles, surpassing the initial target
