Over the last 25 years, we’ve been part of a remarkable story of progress. Since 1990, child mortality has almost halved.
But despite this leap forward, there’s a danger we are leaving many children behind – because they are poor, because they are girls or because of their ethnicity.
Too many children in South Africa die each year, many from causes that could be prevented. Rates of newborn babies’ deaths are not coming down fast enough, and malnutrition remains a stubborn challenge. We’re determined to change this.
