MDG 4: Child health

MDG 4: Child health

Reducing child mortality to achieve MDG 4: 6.9 million children under five years of age died in 2011 – nearly 19 000 children each day and almost 800 every hour. Progress has been made in recent decades, but is unequally distributed across regions and countries and within countries. Important challenges remain for the global goal to be achieved. About 80 percent of the world’s under-five deaths in 2011 occurred in only 25 countries, and about half in only five countries: India, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan and China. India (24 percent) and Nigeria (11 percent) together account for more than a third of under-five deaths worldwide.

The World Health Statistics also include a brief report on annual progress towards the health-related MDGs. In addition, the GHO provides analytical reports on cross-cutting topics such as the report on women and health and burden of disease. Lastly, the GHO provides the link to specific disease or programme reports with a strong analytical component.

Mortality and global health estimates

Age-standardized death rates: Measuring how many people die each year and why they have died is one of the most important means – along with gauging how various diseases and injuries are affecting the living – of assessing the effectiveness of a country’s health system. Having those numbers helps health authorities determine whether they are focusing on the right kinds of public health actions that will reduce the number of preventable deaths and disease. Globally, around 54.5 million people die each year. One in eight of these deaths occurs in children under the age of 5. Most of these preventable deaths in children occur in low- and middle-income countries.
