The Infant Mortality Rate is a public health indicator of a complex societal problem. Various frameworks have been used to help the multiple determinants of infant mortality and to identify interventions to reduce infant mortality. The social causes of infant mortality persistent poverty, pervasive and subtle racism. The chronic stresses associated with them may not be easy to address, it is still possible to understand the risks of infant death by examining the biological pathways through which these societal forces act. The present study observes the impact of infant neonatal and post neonatal. The study area of Madurai District is located in the Southern part of Tamil Nadu, India. This study analyzed the infant mortality for the year 2017-2018 in Madurai District. This study is to identify the infant neonatal and post neonatal mortality rate in the study area and associate with ‘‘Z’’ Score variation based on GIS techniques. Identification and interpretation of infant mortality rate result in framing suitable policies and decisions for effective health care planning. Geographical Information System and statistical analyses are important in guiding health care agencies, public health officers and relevant authorities in progressing efficient control measures and contingency programs in identifying and prioritizing their efforts in effective infant mortality rate control activities. Findings suggest that some progress has been made in reducing infant mortality rates in Madurai particularly in most of the areas with very high infant mortality rates.Pages: 103-112 | Views: 68 | Downloads: 13Download Full Article: Click Here
