Battling infant mortality in Nigeria

New report on child deaths shows Nigeria among worst-off countries in the world.

    One million babies die each year on the day they are born globally, according to new research by Lancet and Save the Children.

    Forty million women are estimated to give birth every year without medical support. A large number of these women live in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Nigeria is trying to cut its high rate of infant mortality.
