Neonatal & Perinatal Mortality : Global Challenges, Risk Factors & Interventions Hardback
Edited by Sajjad ur Rahman, Julian David Eason, Khalid N. Haque
The end of 2015 has brought the end of WHOs Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which have achieved a significant, though patchy improvement in global maternal and child health.
The new-born health and stillbirths were not on the global agenda of MDGs.
Hence, the global burden of neonatal and perinatal mortality remained largely unchanged.
With the dawn of 2016, the world has entered into the new era of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDGs mandates all nations to reduce neonatal mortality rate to <12 per 1000 live births by 2030.
Nations worldwide have committed to this in a major way.
With this in mind, it is important to understand the current burden of global neonatal and perinatal mortality, as its risk factors and interventions required to reach the SDG target by 2030.
This book on neonatal perinatal mortality provides a comprehensive and systematic review by panels of experts from well recognised institutions worldwide on the current status, determinants of neonatal perinatal deaths and the interventions needed to reduce these deaths worldwide.
It is a must read for global health students and experts, paediatricians, neonatologists, perinatologists, obstetricians, public health professionals, health care strategists, health care funding agencies, government and non-government health care providers, academicians, researchers, nurses, midwives, community health care workers, medical students and medical academics.
