  • 247 newborns also face death

warehousesAccording to government sources, despite repeated claims that the number of malnutrition and child mortality has decreased, the statistics bear out the government’s claims. In the last 12 months in the district, 141 people died before birth, while 247 died in the mouth of newborns.

Not only that, 289 children died during this period.

Infant mortality rate is 21.09, neonatal mortality rate is 17.51

According to data obtained from the records of the women and child development department of the district council, 289 children aged 1 to 6 years have died till August 2022. This included 247 newborns between 0 and 1 year. Despite billions of rupees in funding every year from the Central Government’s Department of Reproductive and Child Health, efforts to reduce infant, child and perinatal mortality do not seem to be succeeding. According to the available data, the average infant mortality rate in the district is 21.09 per thousand and neonatal mortality rate is 17.51 ​​per thousand.

12 plans still increase mortality

Funds are available from the Central and State Governments to provide nutritious food to pregnant mothers, prevent child malnutrition, promote their healthy development, improve delivery and provide information to mothers about their diet and care. However, it is also true that more is being spent on promoting the scheme than on the measures and the measures remain only on paper. Interestingly, the government has implemented 12 schemes to improve health conditions as well as reduce malnutrition and child mortality. However, the increasing number of child deaths indicates that this is not having a positive effect.

Many factors are responsible

The death of so many children in the district is alarming. Various factors are responsible for this, such as maternal nutrition during pregnancy, anemia, premature delivery, complications due to lack of health facilities, low birth weight babies. Birth and infant mortality rates are also important.

These include low birth weight babies and such babies are prone to germs due to low immune system. Often such children are referred at the last minute from private hospitals, which increases the number of deaths, especially the shortage of neonatal intensive care units.
