Abstract :

The World Health Organization launched an effort to slash new cervical cancer cases by 40% and deaths by 5 million by 2050. A monthly preventive drug regimen during the rainy season can reduce children's deaths from malaria by up to 57%. Failure to vaccinate children against measles has led to a 556% surge in the number of reported cases and a 50% increase in deaths from the disease since 2016.
