In 2013, as many as 6·3 million children worldwide died before their fifth birthday.1 Children have an increased risk of health-care-related harm because of factors including the complexity of prescribing and dispensing of drugs, a reduced physiological reserve compared with adults, and dependency on others (ie, parents and health-care providers) to recognise the emergence of a hazardous situation.2 Despite these factors, little research has been done of the contributions of substandard care and iatrogenic harm to deaths in childhood.
