The first days and weeks of life are critical for the future health and survival of a child. Nearly two-thirds of the 6.5 million infant deaths each year occur within the first four weeks of life, and about two-thirds of those occur within the first week. It is defined as the neonatal mortality rate (NMR). Neonatal mortality rate is the number of neonates dying before reaching 28 days of age, per 1,000 live births in a given year.
