UNICEF is also alarmed about the spread of the AIDS virus.
By the year 2010 will be the cause of 41-percent of infant deaths in Kenya and 61-percent in Botswana.
And there are concerns about sanitation issues.
The report finds that while the number of people who have access to clean drinking water has increased, almost half the people on earth don't have access to a decent toilet.
As a result, waste often contaminates water supplies-- and increases the risk of cholera and other diseases, causing millions of deaths.))
