November 15, 2016 – The Lives Saved Tool was used in UNICEF’s recent publication, Ending Child Deaths from Pneumonia and Diarrhoea - UNICEF report: One is Too Many.
Released on World Pneumonia Day, the report outlines the needed steps to reduce to global burden of childhood diarrhoea and pneumonia. Using LiST, three intervention packages intended to protect, prevent, and treat diarrhoea and pneumonia were scaled up to 90% by 2030 in the 75 Countdown countries. The analysis concluded that over 12 million under-five deaths could be averted by the intervention packages. The report can be accessed here.
