The status of maternal and child care in developing countries
The status of maternal and child health in developing countries is the principal indicator for health in these areas. Half the deaths occur in children under five years of age, and those that survive generally lag two to four years behind in their growth. Malnutrition and infection play their principal role during early life, when growth and development place great demands and immunity is still developing. Most of the preventive potential of public health programmes lies in early life.
