Advocate for Children

Give young kids around the world the best chance to survive and thrive

Take Action On This Issue

Every child deserves a strong start in life – and that includes living beyond his/her 5th birthday. Not only do we in the U.S. have a proud history of ensuring that our own children lead strong and healthy lives, but we have been a vital part of the progress made on improving children’s lives around the world.

In the last two decades, the number of children dying before age 5 has been cut in half – which is remarkable – but still 6.6 million children a year die before they reach their 5th birthday and mostly from preventable or treatable causes.

In 2013, President Obama declared that ending preventable child deaths around the world is a U.S. government priority. Now we need to ensure that the leadership and resources required to achieve this goal are in place.

Tell Congress that every child around deserves to live beyond their 5th birthday
