Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed

Progress Report 2015

A baby boy, Daniel, travels in a brightly coloured sling pouch being carried by his mother, Melissa (not visible), on a road running between the town of Padilla, in the south-central department of Chuquisaca, and the city of Sucre, the country’s capital.


This report from A Promise Renewed – a global partnership initiative aimed at ending preventable child and maternal deaths – features updates and analyses of global, regional and national child mortality levels and trends. It also provides current information on causes of child and maternal deaths, and coverage of key interventions to prevent them, as well as projections for the 2015−2030 period. The report highlights impressive progress towards our commitment to increase child survival during the Millennium Development Goals era, which has saved the lives of some 48 million children under the age of 5 since 2000. Finally, it calls for intensified action in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals.
