Child Mortality in Africa, 1980 vs 2015 - Our Planet
Child Mortality in Africa, 1980 vs 2015. Child mortality rates in Africa are still high, but fortunately the necessary change is happening, and IM rates are falling in every country. In Sub-Saharan Africa, child mortality has been continuously falling for the last 50 years (1 in 4 children died in the early 60s - today it is less than 1 in 10). Over the last decade this improvement has been happening faster than ever before. Rising prosperity, rising education and the spread of health care around the globe are the major drivers of this progress. Image: Our World in Data Project
