CHILD HEALTH CARE AND INFANT MORTALITY IN CHIKUN LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF KADUNA STATE.

ABSTRACT
The complexity and prolonged nature of poor child health care and high rate of infant mortality in Chikun Local Government Area have a serious social and economic impact on the nation. This study seeks to examine the negative impact of poor governmental policies on health, inadequate health facilities, illiteracy and ignorance on the part of the parent and other notable causes of infant mortality. Infants are subject to high risk of mortality when the parents are not well informed on simple health strategies such as good hygiene, high nutritional diet etc. Poor child health care and infant mortality seems to be higher in the rural areas. This has grossly affected the nations economic as it has led to acute shortage of potential labour.
