Inspired by Steven Pinker's book ENLIGHTENMENT NOW "Then a remarkable thing happened.The rate of child mortality plunged a hundredfold, to fraction of a percentage point in developed countries,and the plunge went global.
Quoting Deaton. "There is not a single country in the world were infant or child mortality today is not lower than itwas in 1950.” In sub Sahara Africa, the child mortality rate has fallen from around one in for in the 1960s two less than one in 10 in 2015, and a global rate has fallen from 18 to 4% – still too high, but should come down if the current thrust to improve global health continues."
