Abstract

The global under-five mortality rate declined by 56% from 93 deaths per 1000 live births in 1990 to 39 in 2017. All WHO regions have halved their under-five mortality rates in the same time period. The burden of under-five deaths remains unevenly distributed. About 73% of under-five deaths occurred in two regions in 2017, WHO Africa (49%) and WHO South-East Asia (24%). The highest under-five mortality rate remains in the WHO African Region (74 per 1000 live births), around 8 times higher than that in the WHO European Region (9 per 1000 live births).
