The Health Minister Alexandre Padilha, signed the Commitment to child survival: a renewed promise. The document is a sign of commitment of the Brazilian government to help countries facing difficulties to achieve the rates of reduction of infant mortality proposed in the Millennium Development Goals (ODB). Having achieved the goal four years ahead of schedule, according to the report by the United Nations Fund for Children (UNICEF), Brazil is invited to share successful experiences, conducted by the Ministry of Health and other government sectors which contributed to positive results.

The agreement, proposed by UNICEF and the governments of the U.S., India and Ethiopia, has been signed heads of government of various countries. More than 100 nations have signed the document. This commitment aims to accelerate the efforts of governments and society in reducing preventable deaths of children under five, with emphasis on the early days of life.The accession of Brazil, as one of the world references in the reduction of infant mortality is extremely important. In 2011, the country was one of five who had the best rates.

With the commitment, Brazil strengthens global cooperation in reducing child mortality in developing countries. The exchange of information and experience exchange should collaborate with the development of programs in several other nations. According to the 2012 Monitoring Report of UNICEF, Brazil shows a reduction of 73% of childhood deaths compared to 1990. This year, the Brazilian rate indicated that for every thousand children born alive, 58 die before reaching five years of life. In 2011, the international shows that the index fell to 16/1.000.
