How Macroeconomic Instability Lowers Child Survival

No RP2008-51, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: The reduction of child mortality is one of the most universally accepted Millennium Goals. However, there is a significant debate on the means of reaching it and its realism with regard to the situation in most of the least developed countries. The recommendations made for the achievement of this goal are mainly medical ones. However, without underestimating the importance of these measures, in particular vaccinations, it seems increasingly obvious that the rate of reduction of child mortality is mainly determined by the evolution of macroeconomic environment.
