Frontline Health Workers Could Save Millions of Children’s Lives

Last year, almost 7 million children died before their 5th birthday. Most of them died needlessly from preventable or treatable causes such as diarrhea, pneumonia and malaria. But every day, health workers on the frontline win battles against preventable child deaths. In fact, every three seconds a child’s life is saved by a frontline health worker – thanks to training supported by the U.S. government, non-profit organizations, and caring people like you.

You can help by urging Congress to protect programs that provide training and support for frontline health workers and help prevent millions of newborn and child deaths from largely preventable and treatable causes.
