Mortality Reductions from Health Interventions: The Case of Immunization in Bangladesh

Abstract

Recent attempts to improve child survival in developing countries are predicated largely on the assumption that significant reductions in childhood mortality can be achieved through simple, cost-effective health technologies. Using data from rural Bangladesh, the authors estimate potential mortality reductions resulting from immunization programs, a cornerstone of most child survival initiatives. They demonstrate that while immunization programs will significantly reduce mortality during ages 1-4 years, their ability to influence mortality during the initial months of life is limited. The results illustrate the potential and the limitations of current child survival strategies for reducing mortality in settings similar to Bangladesh.
