The charity, Save the Children, has identified tax reform as the key to saving lives.

It's urging 300 global business leaders, in Sydney today for a summit ahead of the G-20, to tackle tax evasion, bribery and money laundering.

Save the Children says an alarming 1-trillion-dollars is lost illegally every year from the world's poorest countries.

Its C-E-O, Paul Ronalds, says that money could be used to end preventable child deaths... and it's up to business leaders to make it happen.
