Global, regional, and national levels of neonatal, infant, and under-5 mortality during 1990–2013:

1 Jul 2014 - 16:15

Only 27 developing countries are expected to achieve MDG 4. Decreases since 2000 in under-5 mortality rates are accelerating in many developing countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Millennium Declaration and increased development assistance for health might have been a factor in faster decreases in some developing countries.

Without further accelerated progress, many countries in West and Central Africa will still have high levels of under-5 mortality in 2030.
