This year, 6.6 million children will die
                            before they turn 5. These children mostly live in poor countries, and their
                            deaths are largely preventable. President Obama has said that by saving the world's
                            children from preventable deaths, we'll contibute to ending extreme poverty. USAID has 
                            played a vital role for decades in the delivery of low-cost, high-impact interventions
                            to reach the most vulnerable children around the world. Pie chart with top causes of death for children under 5. Line graph of under five mortality rate
