WHO intensifies efforts on child-appropriate medicines

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Thursday launched a new
campaign aimed to ensure children have better access to medicines
appropriate for them. The campaign, named "Make Medicines Child
Size", targets a range of medicines including antibiotics, asthma and
pain medication that need to be better tailored to children's needs.

It calls for further research and development of combination pills
for HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria, as well as appropriate child therapy for
a number of neglected tropical diseases.


U.S. children cancer death rate down due to better survival
The cancer death rate for children in the U.S. has declined sharply --
down 20 percent from 1990 to 2004 -- thanks to better treatment of
leukemia and other cancers, according to a report released by the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Friday. The cancer
death rate for U.S. children was 34.2 per million for children up to
age 19 in 1990, but fell to 27.3 per million in 2004.
