Decline of infant and child mortality rates in rural Senegal over a 37-year period (1963-1999)


Decline of infant and child mortality rates in rural Senegal over a 37-year period (1963-1999)



International Journal of Epidemiology 30(6): 1286-1293



ISSN/ISBN: 0300-5771

DOI: 10.1093/ije/30.6.1286

Background: In spite of an improving trend, childhood mortality in rural sub-Saharan Africa remains high and has recently risen in some countries. The factors associated with the long-term decline in childhood mortality are poorly known, due to a lack of data. Methods: A rural population in Senegal has been under demographic surveillance since 1963. Infant and under-5 mortality rates were calculated for different periods to generate a long-term trend in childhood mortality.
