Effective Intervention:

Reducing Child Mortality

How should we reduce child mortality? The power of knowledgeable parents

The EPICS (Enabling Parents to Increase Child Survival) trial is a project that aims to change health-seeking behaviour by providing parents with health education, access to essential drugs for children at the community level, and access to better-trained village health workers. The goal for the first two years is to reduce child mortality by at least 15 per cent at a cost effectiveness of less than $300 per life year saved.
