Divergent age patterns of under-5 mortality in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa: a modelling study

(Newsletter: CRVS Insight September (2) 2022)

Understanding the age pattern of under-5 mortality is essential for identifying the most vulnerable ages and underlying causes of death, and for assessing why the decline in child mortality is slower in some countries and subnational areas than others. The aim of this study is to detect age patterns of under-5 mortality that are specific to low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs).
