Welcome to DMI


19,000 children die needlessly every day.

In 2011 one in nine children in sub-Saharan Africa died before their fifth birthday. Almost two-thirds of these deaths could be avoided by increasing coverage of simple, existing and affordable interventions, such as exclusive breastfeeding and handwashing.
