Wikiprogress Africa aims to provide a platform for knowledge sharing on measuring progress and well-being in an Africa context. This article, by Ousmane Aly Diallo, is also part of the Wikiprogress Series on Health.
The second paper on “Interventions to address deaths from childhood pneumonia and diarrhoea…” shows that scaled interventions could save 95% of diarrhoea and 67% of pneumonia deaths in children younger (under 5 years) by 2025. But to reach that goal, the emphasis must be put on community-level healthcare as it is the best way to reach the most exposed populations.
