        Background. Infant and child mortality rates are important indicators of societal and national development as they serve as key markers of health equity and access [1, 2].Despite huge investments by national governments and developmental partners in improving access to health care, the reduction of infant and child mortality rates by two-thirds between – as stipulated in the Cited by:   The Sierra Leone Demographic and Health Survey (SLDHS) is the first DHS survey to be held in Sierra Leone. Teams visited sample points across Sierra Leone and collected data from a nationally representative sample of 7, women age and 3, men age 15­

      Background. Child mortality estimates from complete birth histories from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) surveys and similar surveys are a chief source of data used to track Millennium Development Goal 4, which aims for a reduction of under-five mortality by Cited by: The mortality estimates presented in this report are available in digital form. Interested users can purchase the CD-ROM 1 containing the corresponding data and results of the World Mortality Report.

In terms of health outcomes, the life expectancy in Sierra Leone is 50 years, and maternal and child mortality are among the highest in the world. The already fragile health system of Sierra Leone suffered a severe shock during the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak, with infections among frontline health workers, and recorded health.

Child mortality – Sierra Leone The child mortality estimates for Sierra Leone have been revised on the basis of new data from the MICS survey. The methodology used to derive the child mortality estimates follow closely that documented in the “green book” (ref.1).

The essence of this method is to fit a multi-spline weighted regression. The Government of Sierra Leone, through the Ministry of Health and Sanitation and Statistics Sierra Leone (Stats SL), together with its development partners, conducted the Sierra Leone Demographic and Health Survey ( SLDHS).

The SLDHS provides an opportunity to inform policy and provide data for planning, implementation. Child mortality estimates Each year, in The State of the World’s Children, UNICEF reports a series of mortality estimates for children – including the annual neonatal mortality rate, infant mortality rate, the under-five mortality rate (total, male and female) and.

Our results show a close agreement between the indirect estimates of child mortality for the Death Registration Area (DRA) and the di-rect estimates that are available from vital registration of deaths in this Area. We also show, however, that child mortality was higher in the DRA than in the nation as a whole for whites and, especially, for.

Introduction: Producing estimates of infant (under age 1 y), child (age y), and under-five (under age 5 y) mortality rates disaggregated by sex is complicated by problems with data quality and Author: Cheryl Sawyer.

The leading causes of death among children under age 5 in included preterm birth complications (18 per cent), pneumonia (15 per cent), intrapartum-related events (13 per cent), congenital abnormalities (9 per cent), diarrhoea (8 per cent), neonatal sepsis (7 per cent) and malaria (5 per cent. Sierra Leone - Initial assessment of environmental problems (English) Abstract.

This report provides an analytical framework for discussing the major environnmental and natural resource management issues in Sierra Leone. The primary environmental problems and findings are: water supply and sanitation, land degradation, forest degradation.

Despite its high TFR, Sierra Leone’s population growth is somewhat tempered by high infant, child, and maternal mortality rates that are among the world’s highest and are a result of poverty, a lack of potable water and sanitation, poor nutrition, limited access to quality health care services, and the prevalence of female genital cutting.

With 1, mothers dying perlive births, Sierra Leone has the worst maternal mortality ratio in the world. According to the latest estimates from1 in 17 mothers in Sierra Leone has a lifetime risk of death associated to childbirth.

Under-five mortality Situation. million children under age five died in The risk of a child dying before completing five years of age is still highest in the WHO African Region (76 per live births), around 8 times higher than that in the WHO European Region (9 per live births).

The under-five mortality rate is the number of deaths of infants and children under five years old per live births. The under-five mortality rate for the world is deaths according to the World Bank and the World Health Organization.

million children under age five died in15 every day. The infant mortality rate (IMR) figures are from the United Nations World Population. Sierra Leone has five major administrative regions: (i) Eastern, (ii) Northern, (iii) North-Western, (iv) Southern and (v) Western.
