Rwanda

Region: 

According to the 2014-2015 Demographic and Health Survey on Rwanda, the under-5 mortality rate in Rwanda was 50 deaths per 1,000 live births. Thus, 64% of all deaths among children under age 5 in Rwanda take place before a child turns one. Among the significant contributing factors to childhood morbidity and mortality in developing countries are acute respiratory infection (ARI), fever and dehydration. From 2014-2015, it was found that 6% of children under age 5 showed symptoms of Acute Respiratory Infection.

Noting that other contributing causes of morbidity include Pneumonia, stroke, and Ischaemic heart disease, the TRAction project's house hold air pollution study in Rwanda aims assesses the adoption and impacts of clean cooking. TRAction is also working on Integrated Community Case Management.
