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. with the largest numbers of maternal deaths are Africa and Asia.

At first glance, it appears that maternal mortality increased between andbut 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, ).

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].

Secondary data on infants ( months) and their families were analysed.

Of the many changes that have taken place in Western society during the past two centuries, few have been more significant than the steep fall in infant and child mortality.

However, the timing and causes of the decline are still poorly understood. 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.

These so-called. Diarrhoea is a leading killer of children, accounting for approximately 8 per cent of all deaths among children under age 5 worldwide in This translates to over 1, young children dying each day, or aboutchildren a year, despite the availability of simple effective treatment.

Most deaths from diarrhoea occur among children less than 2 years of age living in South Asia and sub. The first 28 days of life – the neonatal period – is the most vulnerable time for a child’s survival. Children face the highest risk of dying in their first month of life at an average global rate of 18 deaths per 1, live births in Comparatively, the probability of dying after the first month but before reaching age 1 was 11 and after age 1 but before turning age 5 was 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.

Children, newborns and mothers have a greater chance of surviving today than they did just two decades ago. Still, diseases like pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea – along with pregnancy- and birth-related complications – claim the lives of millions of children and mothers every year.

CDC is committed to improving birth outcomes. This requires public health agencies working together with health care providers, communities, and partners to reduce infant deaths in the United States.

This joint approach can help address the social, behavioral, and health risk factors that affect birth outcomes and contribute to infant mortality.

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 is essential when Cited by: Background.

Child malnutrition continues to be the leading public health problem in developing countries. In Ethiopia, malnutrition is a leading cause of child illness and death. Recently the composite index of anthropometric failure (CIAF) has been implemented to measure the prevalence of malnutrition.
