  • SDG: 3.2 By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1000 live births and under-ive mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1000 live births.

  • Every Newborn Action Plan has set stillbirth target of 12 per 1000 births or less by 2030.
