This paper explains how the international framework of human rights can be better used to help reduce child poverty and improve child survival rates. It explores the idea that around the world, three of every four children seen by health services are suffering from at least one of these conditions. Many of these deaths could be prevented using readily available medical technologies at comparatively little cost.  The authors argue that although medical interventions can prevent most  early childhood mortality, they do not address the underlying causes of poor health.
