Abstract

Abstract Children are considered a society’s assets. Child mortality is an important indicator of the overall health situation in a country. In Afghanistan, child mortality is linked to the different social, socio-economic, demographic, health, cultural and environmental factors. The important factors that caused and leading to the mortality of children under five age in Afghanistan are include of: Acute respiratory infections (ARI), Diarrhea, Meningitis, Pneumonia, and other infections, and also linked to the education of mother, rate of accessibility to healthcare centers, lack or less number of doctors and nurses for children and pregnant women, malnutrition, lack of hygienic drinking water and social factors and which indirectly or directly leading to the deaths of children under-five age in this country. It’s also found that the Infants born less than two years after a previous birth have high under-five mortality rates in Afghanistan. The under-five mortality rate for children born less than two years after their siblings is 86 deaths per 1,000 live births, compared to 35 among children born four or more years after their siblings. Almost one third of all children are born less than two years after their siblings. Of course there are efforts by government and international organization like WHO save the children and UNICEF in the two last decades to decrease the rate of children mortality under five years in Afghanistan but the mortality rate is high in the country.
