No Child Born to Die

In the world's poorest countries, 6.9 million children under five die needlessly every year. But an end to child deaths is within our reach.


We are approaching a tipping point in the global effort to end preventable child deaths. Child mortality has halved in a generation, and we are seeing breakthroughs even in the poorest countries. But the fight isn’t over, and we need to redouble our efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

Low-cost solutions that would save lives still aren’t reaching many mothers, newborn babies and children – especially those who need them most. We are helping to change that.

But simple solutions can make a huge difference.

Helping Health Workers


There is a shortage of at least 3.5 million health workers in the world’s 49 poorest countries.

Health workers are the single most important element of any health service, but in many countries where save the Children works, there simply aren’t enough health workers. To stop newborn babies, mothers and children dying, we need a health worker in reach of every mother and child. That’s why we’re helping to train 400,000.
