Abstract
The plight of children in many low-income countries continues to be reminiscent of conditions in 19th century Sweden. At the threshold of the 21st century, we would urge global cooperation in child health with the aim of realising a broader concept of health and development in low-income countries. This would enable the reduction of mortality to be accelerated and child health to be improved by targeting sick children for specific intervention, combined with preventive and health promotion measures.
