New Delhi: India`s infant mortality rate (IMR) has seen a dip from last year but an international NGO here said that India, with current IMR of 53 deaths per 1,000 live births, is still a long way off the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) targets.
According to Subramanian, if India were to achieve the fixed NRHM target, it has to do a lot more. "If India has to reach an IMR of 30 by 2012, then there has to be an annual decline of 5.75 per 1,000 live births in these four years between," she said. IANS
