O elo mais fraco

Of the 10.6 million children under 5 years of age who die each year around the world, most succumb to pneumonia (19 percent), chronic diarrhea (18 percent), malaria (8 percent), newborn blood infection or newborn pneumonia (10 percent), preterm delivery (10 percent) and asphyxia at birth (8 percent), according to the results of a study appearing in the March 26 issue of The Lancet.

Sadly, these grim statistics are largely unnecessary since each of these conditions "are largely amenable to simple intervention," according to study co-author Dr. Robert E. Black, a professor and chairman of the Department of International Health at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University.
