The next revolution: giving every child the chance to survive

This Save the Children report highlights the achievements and challenges in ensuring the survival of children under the age of five. Its publication coincides with the launch of the global campaign on newborn and child survival and serves to remind world leaders to honour their commitments to achieve Millennium Development Goal 4. It is a sad reality that young children, especially in developing countries, continue to die from preventable diseases, while governments spend large amounts of money on weapons of mass destruction.
