Child mortality around the world has dropped 70 percent in the past 50 years. That's great news. But a horrible fact remains: Nearly 7 million children die every year before their 5th birthday. After reaching their 5th birthday, a boy or girl's likelihood of reaching adulthood increases substantially. A gift of quality maternal and child health care will give a child the start in life they need to survive and thrive. For millions of kids around the world, the best birthday gift you can give is the birthday itself.
