3] The United Nations Inter-agency group for child mortality reported that the global neonatal mortality rate
(NMR) fell from 36 per 1 000 live births to 19 per 1 000 live births.
While the current neonatal mortality rate
of 28 per 1000 live births has been lower than the target of 48 deaths per 1000 live births, its maternal mortality ratio (MMR) decreased from 574 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 1991 to 176 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2015.
India's neonatal mortality rate
(deaths per 1,000 live births) is 25.
4 neonatal mortality rate
(per 1,000 live births) kept the world's seventh largest economy below 153 countries who have better survival rates for their newborns.
According to the National Family Health Survey-3 (NFHS-3) report, the current neonatal mortality rate
(NMR) in India of 39 per 1,000 live births, accounts for nearly 77% of all the infant deaths (57/1000) and nearly half of the under-five child deaths (74/1000).
Pakistan is among the countries with highest neonatal deaths with an estimated 245,000 neonatal deaths annually and reported neonatal mortality rate
of 46 per 1000 live births1.
It found that while maternal and newborn death rates are declining, the 2015 global neonatal mortality rate
was 19 per 1,000 live births and the under-five death rate was 43 per 1,000 live births.
In recent years, health authorities have given more attention to tackling inequalities in health outcomes such as neonatal mortality rate
The neonatal mortality rate
was 4/1000 live births among full- term and 123/1000 live births among preterm babies.
Also, the factors that may increase the risk of stillbirth are not necessarily the same factors that may influence the neonatal death rate, and this review moves between the use of these terms (stillbirth rate, neonatal mortality rate
, and perinatal mortality rate) fairly frequently.
In Zambia, the total neonatal mortality rate
The stillbirth rate, early neonatal mortality rate
, late neonatal mortality rate
, perinatal mortality rate and corrected perinatal mortality rate were calculated.
