Baby deaths in Tanzania: Being born in a city no longer increases their chances of survival

Five million children under five years old died in 2021. Of these, nearly half occurred within the first month—a time of high vulnerability. Sub-Saharan Africa had the highest death rate in the world: 27 in 1,000 newborn babies (1,067,000). This is 11 times higher than in countries with the lowest rates (2 deaths in 1,000), such as Australia and New Zealand.
