UNICEF helped reduce the world’s child mortality rate by nearly two thirds since 1990 — one of the greatest global success stories of our time — by increasing access to lifesaving vaccines, quality nutrition and other cost-effective interventions. Unfortunately, the impact of COVID-19 threatens to undo some of that progress.
Even before COVID-19, millions of children under the age of 5 were still dying from preventable causes — nearly half of them as newborns. And hundreds of thousands of women die from preventable and treatable complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
