“In 2022, the number of children that died before their fifth birthday worldwide dropped to below 5 million for the first time, according to a recent United Nations Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation report.

Since 2000, the global under-five mortality rate  has declined by more than half, from 76 per 1,000 live births to 37 per 1,000 live births, the estimates show.”
