The report describes the worldwide response to the challenge of the ‘child survival and development revolution’ and brings together examples from around the world of the low-cost techniques which make this revolution for children possible. The report includes articles by distinguished experts in child health, who draw on their own work to describe the revolutionary potential of the new techniques and to spell out the practical difficulties.
