It is between C & E for me. Considering the style, I choose E.

A, D - 'after' should be followed by the priod.
B - the sentence is not completed.
C - Every thing is fine except that the sentence is verbose.

1 .
"Despite" / "in spite of" - Positive situation but negative outcome
"even though" / "although" - negative situation but positive outcome.

2.
"children's life expectancy" should be the subject of the sentence.

So "E" should be answer.

Hope, this will help

I posted something about these despite / although dilemna similar to dharmin remarks.
I crunched hard on this point but I found some situations where obviously rules of positive/negative outcomes are challenged. Do you guys have a crystal clear rule to exactly know what is appropriate and when ?
