Abstract

Objective: Infant mortality rates are one of the principal parameters reflecting countries' general and mother baby health levels. Evaluating and lowering these rates is therefore highly important. This descriptive study examined the infant mortality rate in 2014-2015, its causes and the factors affecting it, and assessed preventable causes of infant death.
