Keeping score: fostering accountability for children's lives

This analysis reveals that more than 34 million children’s lives have been saved since 2000 because of investments in child health programmes. In the poorest countries, such as Tanzania and Haiti, the analysis calculates the cost of saving a child’s life is as little as $4,205.

It also provides a scorecard that allows governments, policymakers, and donors to track investments in child health.

Furthermore, the scorecard allows stakeholders to link those investments to child deaths averted across countries in a comparable manner.
