Most maternal and neonatal deaths can be. with the largest numbers of maternal deaths are Africa and Asia. At first glance, it appears that maternal mortality increased between and , but in reality differences between the two estimates is almost certainly a reflection of the alternative strategies used for estimation (World Health Organization and United Nations Children 's Fund, ).

  Mortality exhibits seasonal variations, which to a certain extent can be considered as mid-to long-term influences of meteorological conditions. In addition to atmospheric effects, the seasonal pattern of mortality is shaped by non-atmospheric determinants such as environmental conditions or socioeconomic status. Understanding the influence of season and other factors Cited by: Achievements in Public Health, Healthier Mothers and Babies. At the beginning of the 20th century, for every live births, six to nine women in the United States died of pregnancy-related complications, and approximately infants died before age 1 year (1,2).

This death toll is measured by the infant mortality rate (IMR), which is the number of deaths of children under one year of age per live under-five mortality rate, which is referred to as the child mortality rate, is also an important statistic, considering the infant mortality rate focuses only on children.

Although our best pooled estimate of prenatal CPMDs, of which depression is the most common disorder, in LMICs is %, several studies of rural women report higher estimates (e.g., 18%, 25%, and 47% in rural areas of Bangladesh, Pakistan, and South Africa, respectively).Cited by: A study on risk factors of infant mortality, using data from the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey, showed that the risk of mortality in Bangladesh is times higher for smaller babies.

Infant mortality in Bangladesh is also lower for the urban population as well as for higher economic classes (which have greater access to health. As an important marker for health equity and access, under-five mortality (UFM) is a primary measure for socioeconomic development.

The importance of reducing UFM has been further emphasized in an ambitious target under Sustainable Development Goals. The factors influencing UFM are not adequately understood in Bhutan. The most recent dataset of the Author: Tashi Dendup, Tashi Dendup, Yun Zhao, Deki Dema.

The aim of this study is to identify the effects of socio-economic variables on infant, child and under-five mortality of Charghat Thana in Rajshahi District, Bangladesh.

For this, a number of rural women have been interviewed through a structured Cited by: 4. who had diarrhea. Factors associated with diarrhea are age of child, maternal education, main source of water, toilet facility, area of residence, disposal of children's stool, and disposal of dirty water [4].

Diarrheal diseases are one of the top (major) leading causes of under-five morbidity, mortality and under nutrition in developing Size: KB. Infant mortality in Bangladesh is one of the highest in Asian countries. There is substantial decline in the infant mortality rate in Bangladesh.

It was per live births into 53 in and under-5 mortality is 71 (UN, ). Infant and child mortality are affected by birth order, the sex of the child and length of birth by: 5. This study examines the effect of the father’s education on child mortality by taking into account the mother’s education, and explores whether there is an alteration of this effect when community-level factors are : Fortuné Sossa, Mira Johri, Thomas LeGrand.

Secondary data on infants ( months) and their families were analysed. The data base included information on 51 environmental, familial, maternal and child related factors and 3 dependent variables, namely, child mortality, infant morbidity and nutritional status.

Data on infant morbidity and nutritional status were analysed by age and Cited by: 7. Each year, more than 10 million children under 5 years of age die, with almost 4 million within the first 4 weeks of life [ 1, 2].The most recent estimate of the number of infant deaths (deaths under the age of 1 year) is million in the developing world compared with ab who die in the industrialized world [ 3] (Table ).

Developmental neuroscience shows how early biological and psychosocial experiences affect brain development. We previously identified inadequate cognitive stimulation, stunting, iodine deficiency, and iron-deficiency anaemia as key risks that prevent millions of young children Cited by:.

Abstract: Breastfeeding rates among rural African women steadily declined during the 's. The introduction of exclusive breast feeding (EBF) in the 80s helped reduce infant morbidity/mortality however, misconceptions about when to initiate EBF and for how long still persists till date.A child’s risk of dying from malnutrition is not limited to those children with the most severe malnourishment.

There is a continuum of risks such that even mild under-nutrition places a child at increased risk. Low-birth-weight contributes to infant mortality.

Besides, low birth-weight babies who survive may suffer from growth retardation Author: Catherine Ngoma, Sebean Mayimbo.One critical strategy for reducing maternal morbidity and mortality is ensuring that every baby is delivered with the assistance of a skilled birth attendant which generally includes a medical doctor, nurse or midwife.

Experts agree that the risk of stillbirth or death due to intrapartum–related complication can be reduced by about 20 percent.
