The tools for solving child mortality exist today. We have the knowledge, the medical technology, the information and communications technology, the community building skills, and the business acumen to make it happen. Together, we can provide the lever and place to stand for health practitioners in developing communities to move their worlds. What goal4.org is doing //
We are reducing infant and child mortality by using information technology to build a connected, educated, and engaged community – from mothers to medical professionals – that will work together to target the biggest killers of children under five.
Why we are doing it //
Because every year over 7 million children die
before their fifth birthday from easily preventable causes.
Because over 300,000 women die in childbirth and motherless babies are 10 times more likely to die.
Because bright, dedicated, local people are working to stop these things from happening but lack the basic tools and support they need.
Because we can.
