Eurostat agency on Friday published a report stated the average number of child deaths in the European Union (EU) has dropped significantly, with the number of deaths in 1997 at 6.8 per 1,000, and now 20 years later, 3.6 per 1,000.

Eurostat is the European Commission’s directorate in Luxembourg and is responsible for providing the European Union with statistical information at the European level.

In 2017, 18,200 children died before their first year, with Malta, Romania and Bulgaria leading the highest infant mortality rates in the latest statistics, while Cyprus and Finland recorded the lowest rates, the Eurostat report said.

The report attributed the drop in child mortality rates to “high living standards, improved lifestyles, progress in the field of education, as well as in the field of health care and medical services,” pointing out that the low infant mortality rate is one of the most important factors in increasing life expectancy in the European Union.
