India ranks world first in newborn death.

    With 779,000 babies deaths every year India accounts for the highest number of newborn mortality in the world.
The main reasons for the high rates of neonatal deaths are premature birth, hygiene and maternal health, cultural practices, early marriage and child bearing, low birth weights and stunting.
There is severe lack of skill and motivation among frontline workers, including auxiliary nurse midwife, accredited social health activists and anganwadi workers. In most cases, they are ill-equipped and untrained to deal with emergencies leading to death of mothers and newborns thus critical issue is the need for more skilled midwives and nurses to look after women in labour and small and sick newborns.
New born death can be easily prevented if “achievable interventions are scaled up to nearly universal coverage” at all stages before conception, as well as before, during and after pregnancy.
The group says more babies die every day in India due to preventable causes. India has made a lot of progress in terms of child survival. But newborn deaths remain the Achilles heel of India's battle against child mortality.
