Infant Mortality and Child Health in the Mpumalanga Province: 1988/1992
This series of reports on the normality and health indicators of young African and Coloured children in South Africa covers demographic, socio-economic and environmental health factors that affect child health at the most basic level. Because so many of these factors transcend the functions of health departments, the findings in these publications should also be considered by role players outside the health field, whose decisions could help to improve the health of young children and reduce the relatively high risk of dying before the age of five. The surveys are based on a number of field surveys conducted in all nine provinces of the country.
