  • This graph outlines the changes in U5 mortality rates for a number of different countries worldwide, between 1990 and 2008.
    Mortality rates in children under 5yrs of age, are an important indicator of a country’s health status.
    The United nations Millenium development goal 4 aims for a two thirds reduction in U5 mortality GLOBALLY between 1990 and 2015.
    Although globally progress in reaching MDG4 is insufficient, Ireland and the rest of central and eastern Europe are on track.
    In Ireland there has been a consistent gradual reduction, the probability of death dropping from 10 per 1000 livebirths in 1990 to 7 in 2000 and 4.5 per 1000 in 2008. (ie from 1% to 0.7% to 0.05%)
    Overall, the U5MR for Ireland is slightly less than the EU average of 5, but greater than that observed in the scandinavian countries and Japan.
    The highest rates and the smallest reductions have been in the united states.
    Rates of decline are have generally been faster in high and middle income countries than in low-income countries.
