GoodGoes — April 26, 2010 — Save the Children and the Ad Council are working together to mobilize citizen action in the U.S. to help local health workers help save more children worldwide.
Every 4 seconds a child survives thanks to the basic health care provided by local health workers.
Frontline local health workers help children all over the world survive threats like newborn complications, pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, and malnutrition. But global estimates suggest we need 4.2 million more health workers in developing countries. Sadly, one child dies every 3 seconds largely from preventable and treatable causes due to the lack of basic health care.
Help local health workers bring the good to the children who need it most.
Of the children under the age of 5 who die each year, almost 2/3 could be saved with the simple low-cost interventions delivered by health workers in clinics and in their communities. With attention from developing country governments and donor nations, we can help them bring lifesaving care to more hard-to-reach communities and make the survival of children a reality worldwide.
You are one step away from helping children around the world survive.
There are many ways you can help. You could contact Congress or the White House to urge action, or join the growing group of activists, or just share one of our videos with your friends. See all the simple steps you can take to help the good go further.
