Here are the statistics:
- 6+ million children under five years old die each year.
- Only half of women in developing nations receive healthcare during pregnancy.
- In 2012, Malaria killed an estimated 627,000 people but 3.3 million malaria deaths were prevented over a span of 12 years.
Regardless, overall progress is still short of meeting the MDG targets by 2015. On Tuesday, we will have 456 days left to achieve the MDGS. On September 30th, join us on social media using #Day456 to draw attention to these three MDGs and the important work ahead over the next 456 days to meet these goals.
