Global child mortality rates have been dramatically reduced over the last few centuries.

In 2015 child mortality was down to 4.3%—10-fold lower than 2 centuries ago. In pre-modern times around half of all children died—in 1800 the health conditions were such that around 43% of the world’s newborns died before their 5th birthday.
