Abstract

The global reduction of child mortality has been a priority of international and national organizations for the last few decades. Despite widespread global efforts to improve child survival, the latest UNICEF report on the State of the World’s Children 2000 (UNICEF, 2000) indicates that child mortality rates continue to remain higher in lesser developed countries (LDCs), and in some areas, girls continue to die at a greater rate than boys.
