For the children of some of the world's poorest and most populous countries things are getting better. Aids education and control programmes coupled with the spread of political democracy are the main reasons for the sharp fall in infant and child mortality rates. The health of the world's children and why it has improved in some parts of the world--and why it has deteriorated in others--are observed and discussed by the author from an economic, health, political and social point of view.
