Preventable child deaths

Incidence:
According to the United Nations, 7 million children die each year as a result of the way the rich countries undermine social development in the poorest countries.

According to UNEP, 35,000 children are dying every day of environmental diseases which could be prevented for a cost no greater than that of the new Hong Kong airport. The daily toll of preventable child deaths in 1992 was around 40,000; 25,000 of these are from water-related illnesses.
