In 2001, WHO's Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development (CAH) established the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group (CHERG) - a group of independent technical experts external to the UN system - to systematically review and improve data collection, methods, and assumptions underlying the estimates and distribution of the main causes of death of under-fives for the year 2000. This group has so far produced and published at least 25 articles and chapters of books.
