Please do the right thing and honor your aggrement which you made and signed at the 2002 Monterrey Conference and again at the 2002 Johannesburg Summit to make concrete efforts towards giving 0.7% of our national income in aid to poor countries. Please help to stop the tens of thousands of preventable deaths that occur every day from hunger and poverty-related diseases. Thank you.  # 6  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

BBC: Child Deaths in Africa January 23, 2008 7:25 AM

Africa 'lagging on child deaths' 
 
Sub-Saharan Africa is at the bottom of the child survival table
Poverty and war are harming advances in infant mortality, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, a new Unicef report on global child health has said.
Globally, 62 countries were making no or insufficient progress towards a key 2015 child mortality target, it said.

Sierra Leone was the worst performer, with 270 deaths before the age of five per 1,000 live births, in 2006 figures.

This compares to three deaths per 1,000 in the world's six best performers, which included Sweden and Singapore.

The attainment of the 2015 goal - called the fourth Millennium Development Goal (MDG), which requires a two-thirds reduction in the 1990 under-five mortality rate - "is still possible, but the challenge is formidable", the report says.
