Arunachal: Infant mortality rate dips; NHM official praises state’s “remarkable” feat

The infant mortality rate in Arunachal Pradesh has dropped significantly (IMR). IMR in Arunachal Pradesh has decreased from 37 per 1,000 live births in 2018 to 29 per 1,000 live births in 2019, according to the sample registration system bulletin released in October 2021.

“The results signify that the strategic approach of the government of India and the efforts of the state government on health through various initiatives, including strengthening of service delivery, quality assurance, RMNCH+A, human resources, community processes, information and knowledge, drugs and diagnostics, and supply chain management has helped in the remarkable achievements in merely one year,” NHM DD (IEC) O Thamphang stated in a release.

The infant mortality rate, which is widely considered as a rough indicator of a country’s or region’s overall health situation, is defined as the number of newborn deaths (under one year) per thousand live births in a given time period and for a certain region, according to Thamphang.

India’s infant mortality rate has seen a sharp decline in the last few years. It has declined from 50 to 30 between 2009 and 2019, according to data released by the sample registration system (SRS).

However, the data showed that the gains made in the last five years have slowed down drastically. We still are worse than Bangladesh’s and Nepal’s mortality rate which is at 26, but better than Pakistan’s at 56.
