A new study has shown giving the antibiotic azithromycin twice a year to young children in sub-Saharan Africa reduced childhood deaths by 13.5%. The study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, looked at 1,355 communities in three countries spanning the continent. In about half of these communities, nearly all children aged 1 month to 5 years were given 20 milligrams of azithromycin, five times, over a two-year period. The other half of the communities received a placebo.
After the study period, mortality rates among the children given azithromycin were significantly lower when compared to those children given the placebo.
