The Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS) was designed to use basic quality improvement practices to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV and increase child survival through improvements in (1) antiretroviral therapy uptake and retention among HIV-positive pregnant women and mothers, (2) breastfeeding practices, and (3) overall mother-baby care. PHFS was implemented between 2012–2016 in six countries in Eastern and Southern Africa: Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health: a call for papers for a new journal

Closing date

“A worldwide public-health disaster” was how The Lancet described the 10 million forgotten children who were dying each year in 2003. That devastating number of global deaths in children under 5 years was highlighted by The Lancet's first child survival Series, when the journal affirmed its long-term commitment to improving child health. Much progress has since been made, yet UNICEF's State of the World's Children 2016 report estimates that by 2030, 69 million children will still not reach the milestone of their fifth birthday.

Reduced mortality leads to population growth: an inconvenient truth

Yes
Author
James D Shelton

Reduced mortality has been the predominant cause of the marked global population growth over the last 3/4 of a century. While improved child survival increases motivation to reduce fertility, it comes too little and too late to forestall substantial population growth. And, beyond motivation, couples need effective means to control their fertility. It is an inconvenient truth that reducing child mortality contributes considerably to the population growth destined to compromise the quality of life of many, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
