Thirty years ago, former UNICEF Executive Director James P. Grant launched what would become known as the “Child Survival and Development Revolution.” The bold and unprecedented effort, involving a diverse coalition of supporters and partners
from all over the world, saved 25 million young lives and spared millions more the misery of severe disability. Elevating the cause of children’s well-being to historic heights, the ambitious campaign also forever changed the face of global health and demonstrated the amazing potential of international development.
