GlobalPost Special Report Examines Global Efforts To Reduce Child Mortality

In a special report titled “Step by Step,” GlobalPost examines global efforts to reduce child mortality, asking, “What works and what doesn’t in the fight against child mortality? What will it take to go the last mile, and end preventable child deaths?” The report includes a map of child mortality rates country by country, an article examining child mortality in India versus neighboring Bangladesh, an article highlighting a new vaccine campaign to protect against pneumonia in Zambia, an article on Myanmar’s health care system, an article looking at how “corruption in efforts to combat malaria and other diseases that kill children” is hampering efforts in Uganda, and an explanation of the methodology and data used in the report (September 2013).
