Decline in anti-measles efforts raises death toll in children

AAP SmartBrief | Nov 14, 2014

The World Health Organization noted a decline in global measles immunization efforts due in part to insufficient funds, weak health systems and a lack of awareness on the importance of providing vaccinations for children. The agency said about 145,700 children died from the disease in 2013, up 23,700 from 2012. The resulting outbreaks have stalled initiatives to eliminate measles by 2015, the agency added.
