Child Health Leadership and Networks from 2000 to the Present: Country perspectives from Mozambique, Tanzania, and Uganda

Over the past three decades, significant progress has been made in child health around the world. Between 1990 and 2015, the mortality rate for children under five declined by 53%1. In addition, sixty-two countries achieved the fourth Millennium Development Goal of reducing child mortality by two-thirds. Despite these successes, considerable preventable deaths still occur, and health disparities exist, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Greater attention is still needed on child health to address the unfinished agenda as well as ensuring all children thrive and reach their full potential.
