16 June 2012: This week a historic summit, the Child Survival Call to Action, convened by the Governments of Ethiopia, India and the United States, together with UNICEF, brought together partners and experts to mobilize the world toward one ambitious but simple goal—ending preventable child deaths. Worldwide, under-5 mortality has declined from more than 12 million deaths in 1990 to 7.6 million in 2010 -- yet thousands of children still die every day from preventable diseases. Governments and partners signed A Promise Renewed, a pledge to work toward greater child survival.
