Most first-day deaths


Countries with the most first-day deaths

More than 300,000 babies die within 24 hours of being born in India each year from infections and other preventable causes, a report said as it blamed a lack of political will and funding for the crisis. More than half of all Indian women give birth without the help of skilled health care professionals, leading to infections and complications. According to Save the Children which published the findings at the launch of its annual State of the World's Mothers report, the three major causes of newborn deaths are complications during birth, prematurity and infections; and added access to low-cost, life-saving interventions could cut down the figures by as much as 75 percent.
