UNICEF reports on a new UNICEF report pointing to rapid progress made in reducing child deaths worldwide
Coming out today UNICEF's Progress Report on Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed examines trends in child mortality and estimates that the number of children under the age of five dying globally fell from nearly 12 million in 1990 to an estimated 6.9 million in 2011.

Global commitment to this aim was galvanized in June of this year at Child Survival, A Call to Action, an international conference in Washington DC.
