Every day in Pakistan, over 1,100 children under age five die from largely preventable diseases; two-thirds of these deaths are within the first month of life. Lack of access to essential quality health care services, quality nutrition and clean water are some of the major causes for otherwise preventable morbidity and mortality, particularly among impoverished women and children. However, those causes are exacerbated by poor social determinants of health such as illiteracy, unemployment, and gender and socioeconomic inequalities.
