Why do 5 million children still die before their fifth birthday?

Lecture, Monday 3 October, at 09.00 (in English)

Global child health has made great progress over the past 30 years; under-five mortality has decreased by more than half, many more children go to school and fewer children live in extreme poverty. However five million children still die before their fifth birthday, and the differences in risk between countries can be as great as 50-fold.

Tobias Alfvén is a paediatrician and associate professor in global health at the Department of Global Public Health at Karolinska Institutet. Together with his colleague Juliet Mwanga-Amumpaire, a paediatrician and associate professor at Mbarara University in Uganda, they will discuss why so many children are still dying and what we can do to ensure that more children survive. 

There will be breakfast provided to the first 20 to sign up for in person participation!
