THE CAUSES OF POVERTY AND INFANT MORTALITY IN THE DISTRICT KECH, TURBAT, BALOCHISTAN
This study investigated the theoretical and empirical relationship among the income, poverty and infant mortality differences in district Kech, Turbat Balochistan. The study analyses the relative influence of a number of biological, social, and economic factors on the risk of infant mortality on the basis of national data collected since 2000 to 2016 in the concerned departments. The analytical methods used on multidimensional contingency tables offer an assessment of the relative risks of infant deaths in various sub-populations, with the documented combination of the birth and death data, with the coefficient estimates of these models being used. The Hospital care during the neonatal period, however, seems to reduce this increased risk for some high-risk infants. The continued poverty and unequal access to health care for expectant mothers and young moms in Turbat city and its environs show that these disparities have persisted into the present. To reduce these disparities, it is advised to increase access to and support for family health services through income subsidies and employment programming.
