did you know?

Did you know that…

  • In 2004 alone, there were over 40 million deaths in developing countries, 1/3 among children under age five,


  • 10 million of these deaths* could have been easily avoided if safe, inexpensive, essential drugs were there.

Just an example...

  • simple iron-folate preparations can reduce maternal and child mortality from anaemia during pregnancy.



* Due to diseases such as acute respiratory infections, diarrhoeal diseases, tuberculosis, and malaria.
