In 2010, 7.6 million children died before their fifth birthday. That same year, 358,000 women died during pregnancy or childbirth and there were 390,000 new HIV infections in children, with the odds in life already stacked against them. Infectious, life-threatening diseases like pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria are further exacerbated by endemic rates of malnutrition and poor access to health services. USAID is working with a wide array of partners to end preventable child deaths and improve the quality of and access to health care for marginalized groups –such as women and girls, children, and people living with HIV and AIDS.
