    Hi Simon

    It is a great infographic but I don’t think your fact about no progress on MDG 4 really stands in the light of all the recent evidence – e.g. here
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/a-startling-and-welcome-drop-in-child-mortality/2012/05/30/gJQAlaRi2U_story.html

    Hope all is good with you both.

      Thanks for your feedback.

      I did see the Washington Post article but haven’t been able to dig out the World Bank Report. I get close but then get a ‘Page Not Found’. Do you have it in digital form by any chance? Anyway it looks like promising news.

      However, I still stand by the assertion that step-change is required in terms of the rate of improvement in child survival and that innovation is required to achieve this as current rates of change through incremental improvement are not sufficient.

      The poster is meant to represent the ColaLife journey: the inception, planning and creation of the ColaLife concept and the first trial. So the data quoted represents our starting point: the impetus for the design of the first trial.

      This is our source – it’s a UNICEF review of the MDGs:

      You will see from this report, if we were taking just about sub-Saharan Africa the figures would be worse: 100-78-33 not 100-72-33.

        I think the figures are actually very encouraging – see this CGD blog.

        It is important to recognise progress but I think it actually means that models such as yours are more important as the children who are still dying are those at the last mile.
