This has to do with unit 6 because it deals with mortality.The infant mortality rate has decreased in Maharshtra by three points. This was helped by improving health care. For example the state now has home based newborn care. The data in 2010 said the IMR dropped from 31 to 28 deaths per 1000 births. The main cause for these deaths is malnutrition which is 50%.Low birth weight is caused by bad maternal nutrition and lack of aternal care.It is said that babies are at higher risk to die if they weigh less than 2,500 rather than being more. They hope to bring the mortality rate down even more.
