Child Health Research

Deaths in children under the age of five years have declined substantially in recent decades, yet nearly 11 million children continue to die annually around the world, most from preventable causes.

In the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000, world leaders agreed to work together to reduce the deaths of children under five by two-thirds by the year 2015. This goal is unattainable, however, without focusing efforts on the regions where most deaths occur—South Asia and Africa—and on the major causes of mortality, principally infectious diseases and malnutrition. 

The GRA Partnership identifies new technologies and methods for improving child survival and family health, with a particular emphasis on the effective integrated implementation of services that have the greatest impact in developing countries.
