Colleagues, my heart bleeds when I analyse realities on the ground as regards to increased child mortality in some African countries including mine! In their detailed study titled ` Assessing donor assistance to marternal, newborn and child health between 2003 and 2006, Giulia Greco etal, reveals that aid towards these areas increased from USD2119 in 2003 to USD3482 (64%). Instead of experiencing a general improvement, we see the opposite in the welfare of children. Where are we missing the point in this fight? Please colleagues in Sub Saharan Africa help me to understand.
