      Where the children are India’s one billion plus population, together with young and large populations in Bangladesh and Pakistan, means that the region has the world’s second largest population of children. Of the three countries, only Bangladesh, with a lower rate of child mortality than either India or Pakistan, is on track to meet MDG 4. This report presents the group’s latest estimates of under-five, infant and neonatal mortality up to the year , and assesses progress at the country, regional and global levels. Critically, it shows that although the number of children dying before the age of five has reached a new low – million in , compared with nearly million in – the proportion of under-five.

      Infant mortality. Around 14 children died before reaching one year of age in the EU in ; this was equivalent to an infant mortality rate of deaths per 1 live births. Figure 5: Infant mortality, and (deaths per 1 live births) Source: Eurostat (demo_minfind).   The regions of northern Africa/western Asia, eastern/southeastern Asia, southern Asia, CIS Asia, and Latin America/Caribbean all experienced increases in the average sex ratio of child mortality of 6 or more percentage points. In sub-Saharan Africa, however, there was essentially no change in the average sex differential of child mortality.

This report presents the UN IGME’s latest estimates – through – of neonatal, infant and under-five mortality as well as mortality among children aged 5–14 years. It assesses progress in the reduction of child and young adolescent mortality at the country, regional and global levels, and provides an overview of the methods used to.

This chapter gives an overview of conditions that existed during times. Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to undernutrition; undernutrition puts children at greater risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of such infections, and delays recovery.

The interaction between undernutrition and infection can create a potentially lethal cycle of worsening illness and deteriorating nutritional status.
