(+) MANY MOTHERS STILL DIE DURING BIRTH – SURVEY
In Kenya, maternal mortality remains high at 362 deaths per 100,000 live births, according to the 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey. However, childhood mortality continues to decline. According to the 2014 KDHS, infant mortality is 39 deaths per 1,000 live births and under-five mortality is 52 deaths per 1,000 live births. This means that 1 in 20 children dies before their fifth birthday. This is less than half the under-five mortality rate published in the 2003 KDHS.
