Abstract:Why do some poor communities have levels of child mortality as low as those in wealthy countries while others lose more than a fifth of their children under the age of five? Research by Peter Boone shows that the key lies in having parents with good general education and health knowledge - and the willingness to seek out modern healthcare.
