Uganda is one of the few countries in Sub-Saharan Africa making significant progress in reducing child mortality, the latest report from UNICEF shows.
The report titled Every child alive, the urgent need to end newborn deaths,2018 analyzes progress made by countries globally in reducing child mortality.
Uganda was second best in East Africa with 21 deaths followed by Tanzania, with 21.7 newborn deaths. Kenya registered 23, Burundi 24 and South Sudan recorded 38 children dying per 1,000 births before their first month.
Rwanda was ranked best in East Africa, and was the only country in the region among the top 10 nations with the lowest new-born deaths.
From a high of 41 deaths per 1,000 births in 1990, Rwanda has cut that number by more than half to 16 deaths per 1,000 births in 2016.
Rwanda’s success has been attributed to political will and investments in strong health systems that prioritise babies born in the poorest and most marginalised areas.
Quoting the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) key indicators report for the sixth Demographic and Health Survey 2016, the ministry in a communication dated \March 14 said that the results show that Infant Mortality Rate has declined from 54 deaths per 1000 live births in 2011 to 43 deaths per 1000 live births in 2016.
It is because of the above that the foundation thought engaging and promoting health sector will benefit the country.
