In 2000, the United Nations adopted a set of Millennium Development Goals (MDG), one of which is reducing child mortality. MDG4 targets a two-thirds reduction in child mortality between 1990 and 2015. What are the leading factors in child mortality, and how likely is it that MDG4 will be met? Learn more about child mortality and efforts to improve child survival. Then identify something that your school or community could do to help.
