Neonatal mortality remains a major contributor to death among children younger than 5 years in developing countries. It accounts for approximately 40% of all childhood mortality in resource-poor countries. Each year, 7 million neonates globally are stillborn or dying within 30 days of birth (neonatal period). Reducing Neonatal mortality requires that interventions be readily accessible and available in the immediate perinatal period. Such countries have weak health metrics and systems, resulting in a paucity of perinatal and neonatal mortality information and a deficiency in quality of available data.
