UNICEF: Every day 15,000 children die

Every day, according to UN, about 15,000 children under age of five die. According to a report by UNICEF, World Health Organization (WHO) and World Bank, 5.6 million children died last year. In year 2000 it was still 9.9 million. Around 7,000 children are already dying as newborns. Their share increased from 41 percent in same period to 46 percent. Anor 2.6 million babies are already born dead.

According to report, causes are frequent pneumonia and diarrhea. Moreover, many children would die from environmental filth and lack of hygiene, WHO already shared in March. A third of all newborn babies die because of complicated births or because y come to world too soon. Many of m could be saved if mors were better cared for during pregnancy and childbirth, had clean water and access to toilets. In addition, more children would have to be vaccinated.

It is a scandal that 2017 pregnancy and childbirth are still life-threatening for women and children in some regions, said World Bank health director, Tim Evans. By 2030, a better supply could be saved under 30 million newborn report and 30 million more children under age of five. "We have knowledge and possibilities, we just have to bring m where y are most needed," said Stefan Swartling Peterson, UNICEF health director.

Situation in India, Pakistan and Nigeria bad

Thus, half of all deaths in newborn babies are in five countries: India (24 percent of deaths), Pakistan (ten percent), Nigeria (nine percent), Democratic Republic of Congo (four percent) and Ethiopia (three percent). Last year, Vice-director of UNICEF, Justin Forsyth, said that number of dead children could be drastically reduced if "in 74 countries expenditure is only raised by two percent."

The report on worldwide child mortality is published annually by UN Interagency Group for Child Mortality Estimation (IGME). It is made up of UNICEF, World Health Organization, The WB and UN Population Division. This year mortality rate of children between ages of five and 14 was also raised for first time.
