UNICEF Lauds Bangladesh Vow to Ending Preventable Child Deaths before 2035

“There’s a lot to learn from Bangladesh. Between 1991 & 2011, under-5 deaths fell by almost 75 %, thanks, in part, to its commitment to innovation & knowledge-sharing,” UNICEF Exec. Dr. Anthony Lake. “The challenge now is to achieve high levels of coverage of existing & new interventions, such as vaccinations & skilled birth attendants, by targeting poorest populations where infant & child mortality remain high.”
