India considerably reduces child mortality rate

Importantly, this statistics indicates that the programmes executed by the Indian government’s health department to bring down the child mortality rate have helped to save nearly one million children.
The programmes introduced to encourage women to give birth in the hospitals have considerably contributed in bringing down the rate.
During the period, the public health service has undergone a radical expansion. The aforementioned factor has also positively influenced the phase of deceleration.
It is advised that the Indian health department should maintain the pace of momentum achieved through hard work in this area.
