New Delhi: 4th November 2011
The state government’s claims of better child healthcare lie exposed. Between 2009 and 2010, the infant mortality rate (children dying within the first year of birth) has increased 18.5% — from 18.96 per thousand to 22.47 per thousand. At the same time, the number of still-births has almost doubled. Experts say the collapse of the public health system is to blame.
