The first 28 days of life – the neonatal period – is the most vulnerable time for a child’s survival. Children face the highest risk of dying in their first month of life at an average global rate of 18 deaths per 1, live births in Comparatively, the probability of dying after the first month but before reaching age 1 was 11 and after age 1 but before turning age 5 was   To understand the effect of economic growth on health, we investigated the trend in socio-economic and regional determinants of child health in Mongolia.

It is a first attempt in the context of Pakistan to model composite mother‘s empowerment score as one of the determinants of child In addition to child factors that were observed to influence neonatal survival, certain maternal factors were shown to be associated with child survival within the first 28 days of life.

Infants delivered by grand multiparous women were 3 times more likely to die compared to those delivered by nulliparous women (OR ; 95% CI – ; P Multi‐level analyses of the determinants of child mortality across a large number of developing countries have shown that mothers’ education at every level of attainment was more important than wealth/income, was the dominating factor at the household and community level, and played a key role at the national level (Pamuk, Fuchs, and Lutz The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) is a brief behavioural screening questionnaire that asks about children's and teenagers’ symptoms and positive attributes; the extended version also includes an impact supplement that asks if the respondent thinks the young person has a problem, and if so, enquires further about chronicity, distress, social impairment, and burden for ://   Neonatal mortality is a global challenge; identification of individual and community determinants associated with it are important for targeted interventions.

Survival status of the preceding child was also found to be a major predictor of birth intervals. According to the study done in Pakistan, mothers whose previous child was dead were more likely to have short birth interval compared to those with surviving child.
