The global mortality rate among children under 5 has plummeted in the last several decades. As we kick off 2017, Fast Company, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) want to share those success stories – as well as lay the groundwork for the work there still is to do. IHME holds a vast data store that can help ground stories and help the world see and understand the causes and impacts of both successes and opportunities.
