"Every mother and child counts" is the slogan for World Health Day 2005. It reflects the fact that the health of women and children is not yet a high enough priority for many governments and the international community. Far too many mothers and children are suffering and dying each year. Just using knowledge we have today, millions of lives could be saved. We must all join forces and act to transform this knowledge into action.

NEW: PAHO Thanks All Partners for Making World Health Day 2005 a Success
