[afro-nets] NGOs and health systems strengthening (or weakening) (7)

I'd like to through another idea in there that I've been thinking about for 
some time.  I am not sure children die for any of the reasons we think, but 
because parents are so used to children under 5 dieing as they have for 
hundreds of years that they do not invest as much in food and resources as they 
expect there to be many deaths before 5 and if they live to age 5, they begin 
that investment as they expect them to live to adulthood and to support their 
parents when the parents are old.

Best regards,
