Document Summary

Biological and social lie of being born. Improper anc (neonatal care) of mother compromises. Maternal education contributes to knowledge to seek care (women have less education as the goal of women is to find a good husband/family) Genetics is important contributor but difficult to modify/change survival. We are never at the same odds of surviving (programmed in our genes but also influenced by the behaviour our families have, education, nutritional characteristics, and any modifications) Every baby born has a heavy burden of risks that they do not have the choice of. will change depending on how developed regions are. The more developed the area, the higher the share of neonatal deaths because less deaths in older ages than younger ages [boys are more fragile than girls - but also depending on where you are born] Families usually do not prefer girls - health affected. Of the world, only 40% of deaths are recorded [births were probably unregistered as well]
