Demographic trends and population issues: current and potential impact on child health

Pacific Health Dialog 1(2): 13-17
Demographic trends and population issues: current and potential impact on child health
A close look at the structure, distribution and growth patterns of the Pacific Island population finds significant demographic features. With few exceptions, fertility is high, with only modest decline in Melanesia and Micronesia and steeper decline in Polynesia. Mortality in contrast, has declined far more rapidly in many countries reaching levels usually associated with the more developed regions of the world.
