Abstract

Children in developing countries bear most of the burden of childhood death and disease. Because decades of technical and medical research have produced solutions to most of the serious health problems affecting such children, the main challenge ahead remains one of implementation. Achieving this goal will almost certainly require significantly greater commitment by the nations, organizations, and individuals who have the ability to help.
