Aid group Save the Children is highlighting progress in combating child mortality in many
developing nations in Africa， while also warning of the need to address inequalities to help children have a better chance of surviving.
The group issued a new report saying the world has made "remarkable" improvements in child health， but that kids in poor and rural areas， as well as girls and infants， remain more at risk of dying. The report urges governments to focus on preventing infant deaths， which have fallen much less than those of other children under age 5， and on addressing the malnutrition it says underlies almost half of child deaths. It also says countries can make greater gains by instituting routine immunizations， promoting breastfeeding， the use of treated bed nets， and ensuring proper nutrition for mothers during pregnancy. Other African nations to meet the U.N. goal so far include Liberia， Malawi and Tanzania. Seven others -- Cape Verde， Eritrea， Madagascar，
Mozambique， Niger， Rwanda and Uganda -- have reduced their child mortality by more than 60
