Millennium Development Goal No. 4 to reduce childhood mortality by two-thirds as of 2015, the number of deaths of children under age 5 has declined—from 12.6 million in 1990 to 6.6 million in 2012. Rollins researchers are among those improving the odds globally for children and their mothers. Photo by Kay Hinton
