Let’s proceed to the list of countries with the lowest infant mortality rates in the world in 2017. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. Statistics claim that some of the top, richest, healthiestm and most advanced countries in the world are, in fact, countries with the lowest infant mortality rates in the world. So, what is exactly the infant mortality rate? It’s the number of infant deaths (before the first birthday) out of every 1,000 live births in one year. Some of the factors affecting infant mortality are mother’s age, the order of birth, parents’ education, residence, and occupation, as well as various cultural and economic factors. However, probably the most important ones are poverty and the lack of availability of medicine.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with the lowest infant mortality rates in the world in 2017 from their list.
The first one is France.
Most people agree that France is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. With unique architecture, good infrastructure, and rich culture, France is one of the most desirable countries in the world when it comes to the living. Additionally, this country has one of the world’s best healthcare systems, so it’s no wonder that infant mortality rate is low. The second country should be Italy now. Well, we all know that a Mediterranean climate, rich culture and delicious cuisine are reasons for Italians to be healthy. When we add to that high living standard, low unemployment, and good health care system, we can understand why Italy ended up on our list of countries with the lowest infant mortality rates in the world in 2017. At last, but not least there’s Finland. We all know that Finland’s economy is not doing bad, and that country is one of the most wanted among foreigners who want to live abroad. The reasons are good social politics, functional healthcare system and so on. Besides that Finland is one of the countries with the cleanest air and also the cleanest water in the world.
