From GPS Broadcasting (NPR) On Second Thought

Nearly 6 million children around the world die each year before the age of five. Why?

A new initiative hopes to answer that question soon.  It’s called the Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance Network, or CHAMPS.  The project is a collaboration between powerful research organizations that include the Emory Global Health Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The goal is to set up 20 surveillance sites over a 20-year span, and the first three of those sites were recently announced: Mali, Mozambique and South Africa.
