80 % of all births take place in a hospital. Around 11.4 % of newborns
have birth weights under 2,500 grams. In 2001, infant mortality rate
was 15.9/1,000 live births (154 infant deaths). In 2002, the infant
mortality rate was 21.1/1,000 live births (215 infant deaths). The
perinatal mortality rate in 2002 was 31.7 per 1,000 live births.
Most infant deaths are due
to conditions originating in the perinatal period (49 %),
followed by congenital malformations, and gastrointestinal
and respiratory infections.
