Reducir la mortalidad infantil

Reducir la mortalidad infantil

Alrededor de 10 millones de niños menores de 5 años mueren cada año – más de 1000 cada hora. La mayoría de estos niños podría sobrevivir y prosperar si tuvieran acceso a intervenciones sencillas y asequibles. La pérdida de un niño es un tragedia – las familias sufren y se desperdicia el potencial humano. La OMS está mejorando la salud infantil con la ayuda que está dando a los países para que puedan proporcionar atención sanitaria integrada y efectiva, comenzando con un embarazo sano para la madre a través desde el nacimiento hasta un seguimiento del niño hasta los cinco años de edad del niño. Las inversiones en los sistemas de salud son la clave para poder ofrecer esta atención esencial” (OMS)
