UN News - UNICEF launched the Every Child ALIVE campaign, an urgent appeal to fulfill the promise to keep every child alive.
“Around the world, an estimated 7,000 newborn babies die every day. More than 80% of those deaths are the result of causes that could have been prevented with basic solutions such as affordable, quality health care delivered by well-trained doctors, nurses and midwives, antenatal and postnatal nutrition for mother and baby, and clean water.”
UNICEF campaign aims to build consensus for the principle that every mother and every baby deserves affordable, quality care.
It also aims to realize the promise of Place, People, Products and Power in 10 focus countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, India, Indonesia, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Pakistan and the United Republic of Tanzania. Together, these countries account for more than half of the world’s newborn deaths.
