Child mortality remains prevalent in low-income and middle-income countries, with the sub-Saharan Africa region accounting for the largest under-5 mortality rates. Although under-5 mortality rates have significantly decreased, most countries in sub-Saharan Africa with high mortality rates are unlikely to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal of at least as low as 25 deaths per 1000 livebirths by 2030.
