This map shows the worldwide infant mortality rate in 2008. The Northern hemisphere seems to have fewer deaths than the southern, meaning that they more doctors, who are better trained and well-equipped. Also, they have better medical technology, and also better hygiene and sanitation rates. The south, however, has more deaths, and in Africa, there are the most deaths. Per every 1000 live births in the Democratic Republic of Congo, there are 108 deaths. This is over 10% of children dying. This is due to a lack of technology and funding for medical facilities, and also due to a lack of sanitation. Another factor is that pregnant women do not get any childbirth medicine or care, so their baby is more likely to die. In developing countries, this rate is much lower (in Brazil it is 16 per every 1000), but this is still much more than Norway, where this figure is 2.8 per 1000 live births.
