Every year in Ghana, millions of children die from preventable causes such as measles, malaria, and HIV. Malnutrition and the lack of sanitation contributes to a third of all child deaths. The highest rate of child mortality is in sub-Saharan Africa, where one out of every eight children die before their fifth birthday. Ghana’s infant mortality rate is among the highest in the world ranking at the top of the scale at number 49 out of 223 (CIA World Facts Book, 2012).
The current rate of death of new born babies and children under the ages of five (5) is alarming and The Fever Relief Fund (TFRF) is dedicated to exhausting its resources to target one of the main cause of high mortality rate
MALNUTRITION; and to work with mothers, clinics, hospitals and government agencies to find a lasting solution to the problem.
