Infant mortality constitutes an important indicator of health and social environment of a society. Mortality is an important issue in public health, most especially for developing countries like Nigeria. This paper has been able to look critically into the health sector of Ondo State, Akure by looking into the aspect of Infant mortality, still birth and possible causes of infant mortality. The summary of the Chi-square results show that there is no significant difference between the type of disease causing infant mortality and gender while the regression analysis identifies the diseases contributing more to infant mortality such as severe anaemia, pneumonia and still birth asphyxia.
