  • Abstract:

    The Article by Agbessi Amouzou and colleagues1 is a welcome effort to document the successful reduction in the under-5 mortality rate (U5MR) in Niger. Amouzou and colleagues suggest that universal access to primary health care, mass campaigns, and nutrition programmes are the main strategies responsible for these changes. However, there remain some unanswered questions which would benefit from a more in-depth analysis to explain the drivers of changes in child mortality in this country.
