6 Reduce child mortality

Where we are?

This goal has almost been met, but the trend has been turning to stagnation in last couple of years. Child mortality is stagnating and among the Romani children even decreasing. However, on this indicator Serbia could score even lower. Coverage with basic immunization has increased to a very high level, with good prospects for absolute coverage. Here, there are signs of stagnation just before the target has been reached. Pregnant women have been covered by medical care to a great extent. The only indicator showing reverse trend is breast feeding. This gap should be covered through more intensive campaign.

Targets for MDG4
  1. Reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among children under five
    • Under-five mortality rate
    • Infant mortality rate
    • Proportion of 1 year-old children immunised against measles
