Access to clean water, healthy newborn babies
Every Child Alive
In Uganda, 27 out of every 1,000 babies born, die before the first 28 days of their lives. Many die from severe infections due to poor hygiene as a result of inadequate safe and clean water. However, these newborn deaths can be prevented if health facilities have access to clean and safe water and soap. UNICEF with financial assistance from the Government of Japan, has improved the supply of clean and safe water, sanitation and hygiene conditions in health facilities to support safe deliveries.
