Preventive services for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 3.1 and SDG3.2)

Coverage of antenatal care at least four visits and Children aged < 5 years with diarrhea receiving oral rehydration salts

Sustainable Development Goal 3(SDG 3): is aiming to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages. Among health targets for achieving this goal, the following two targets about this assignment:

3.1 By 2030, reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100 000 live births.

3.2 By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under five years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1000 live births and under-5 mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1000 live births.

In this assignment, you will compare and contrast the preventive measures of Antenatal care coverage - at least four visits (%) and Children aged < 5 years with diarrhea receiving oral rehydration salts for prevention of maternal and under-five child mortality consequently. You will analyze the most recent data for three different countries from different economic levels according to the World Bank classification as

1- Upper mddle-income country: Colombia

2- Low middle-income country: Cambodia

3- Low-income country: Congo

To prepare for this assignment:

1- Review data of maternal mortality rates for the up provided countries in your scenario from World Health Organization website links, "Cause-Specific Mortality and Morbidity: Maternal Mortality Ratio Data by Country  and Under-Five Child Mortality Levels: Number of Deaths (Thousands) by Country

2- Go to the World Health Organization's website link, "Health service coverage

Data by country and note the percentage of Antenatal care coverage - at least four visits (%) percentage of children under five with diarrhea receiving Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT %)
