Data Science Approaches to Improve Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health in Africa
Globally, there is an ongoing burden of 5.4 million deaths annually, that includes neonatal deaths (2.5 million), stillbirths (2.6 million), and maternal deaths (0.3 million). Africa, with only 17% of the world’s population, carries nearly half of this burden with 2.3 million deaths per year. Based on current trends, most African countries may possibly not meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals’ target of 12 or fewer neonatal deaths per 1,000 live births and are also at risk of missing targets for maternal mortality reduction.
