Children's Race for Survival In the Toughest Places

Children born into poverty are almost twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday. 99% of the annual toll of 6.6 million child deaths happen in developing countries.

That’s where Save the Children’s Race for Survival comes in. Held on the UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, 17th October 2014, it’s a chance for children’s voices from the toughest places in the world to be heard, loud and clear. From Bangladesh to Bolivia, from Niger to Norway thousands of children in over 60 countries will join a global race.

While introducing the Race for Survival, this publication provides information on those regions and places that are the toughest to survive in. The places where children are dying in large numbers from preventable causes are increasingly concentrated – in certain regions of the world, in particular countries, in specific localities and within the poorest and most disadvantaged communities.
