|Abstract: ||The Matlab mortality case study was prepared within the context of a joint UN Population Division/WHO project. Motality levels and trends were studies in five countries: Bangladesh, Guatemala, Kenya, Senegal and Sri Lanka. In the case of Bangladesh it was recognised that vital registration data would be inadequate, and that data prepared under the Demographic Surveillance Syctem (DSS) maintained by the ICDDR,B in Matlab thana would be of great relevance for the project.
The Case Study report has been constructed with a set of illustrative investigation done in the Matlab area prior to 1982. Studies on sex and socio-economic differential in mortality are provided. Problems related to cost and "cause of death" are descussed.
Despite the complexity of the development problems faced in attempting to reduce mortality, some simple strategies are available that can have a immunisation programme has been documented in the Matlab area.
Comparisons between the Matlab area and the rest of Bangladesh have estimation procedures are provided. The few studies cited in the report should not be considered comprehensive, either for Bangladesh or for Matlab itself. They are intended to help policy makers choose those options whereby mortality can be monitored and reduced in developing countries.|
