The recent deaths in the BRD Medical College of Gorakhpur was a shocking incident. However, these deaths beg a deeper question - child health. The health of a child is a good indicator of a country's health and well-being as a child is vulnerable to diseases and a healthy child means a healthy country. Around 1.08 million children died in 2015. India's mortality rate (MR) was 43. It is better than only Pakistan's (81) and Afghanistan's (91) amongst South-Asian countries. Assam (46) and Madhya Pradesh (50) has even worse MRs than Ghana's. Niti Ayog today promises a 7.5% economic growth. However, does this development help the most in need?
