What is Dead NewBorns and Infant Mortality?
Infant mortality is the death of an infant before his or her first birthday. The infant mortality rate is the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. In addition to giving us key information about maternal and infant health, the infant mortality rate is an important marker of the overall health of a society. In 2018, the infant mortality rate in the United States was 5.7 deaths per 1,000 live births.
Causes of Infant Mortality or Dead NewBorns
Over 21,000 infants died in the United States in 2018. The five leading causes of infant death in 2018 were:
-Preterm birth and low birth weight.
-Maternal pregnancy complications.
-Sudden infant death syndrome.
|Millennium Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in 2000 aim to decrease child deaths worldwide by 2015: |
*Every year nearly 41% of all under-five child deaths are among newborn infants, babies in their first 28 days of life or the neonatal period.
*Three quarters of all newborn deaths occur in the first week of life.
*In developing countries nearly half of all mothers and newborns do not receive skilled care during and immediately after birth.
*Up to two thirds of newborn deaths can be prevented if known, effective health measures are provided at birth and during the first week of life.
*Of the 8.2 million under-five child deaths per year, about 3.3 million occur during the neonatal period —in the first four weeks of life.
*The majority - almost 3 million of these - die within one week and almost 2 million on their first day of life.
*An additional 3.3 million are stillborn.
*A child’s risk of death in the first four weeks of life is nearly 15 times greater than any other time before his or her first birthday.
*Virtually all (99%) newborn deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. It is especially in Africa and South Asia that the least progress in reducing neonatal deaths has been made.
*Almost 3 million of all the babies who die each year can be saved with low-tech, low-cost care.
