Millennium Development Goals: A compact among nations to end human poverty (375 pages).

On page 110: Policy priorities and technical interventions, Goal 4: cutting under-five mortality by two-thirds:


“Achieving Millennium Development Goal 4- reducing under-five mortality by two-thirds between 1990 and 2015—will require addressing the main causes of child mortality. Technical interventions must focus on malnutrition, infectious and parasitic diseases and immunizations, delivered through a strengthened basic health care system.” … “Children’s health can suffer enormously from micronutrient (vitamin A, iron, zinc and iodine) deficiency, and can be addressed through supplementation (such as iodization of salt).”
