UNICEF, DANIDA support Ghana to reduce child mortality
font size    

The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Danish International Development Assistance (DANIDA) have contributed a total of three million dollars for the reduction of high child mortality rate in the Upper West Region, the Ghana News Agency quoted Ghanaian Upper-West Regional Minister Ambrose Dery as reporting on Wednesday.

Dery said the first week of November this year would be used for a special child survival program that would make sure all children under five years old in the region are immunized against measles and polio and given vitamin "A" supplements without any financial cost to parents.

Dery said the region's goal of reducing the child mortality rate from 208 deaths per 1,000 live births to 104 per 1000 must be achieved by the end of next year and therefore called on parents and all stakeholders to collaborate for that ambition to be realized.
