Baby blues: Why the country's infant mortality rate is so high and what can be done about it

Perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of improving infant death rates in the U.S. is rooted in understanding the effects of the country’s disparities.

To find the answer to the question of why we’re so slow in improving the health of our babies, researchers are looking to explore trends in child and infant death region by region. “We are starting to do some of that local level research now and those results will help us get closer to putting our finger on what needs to change in order to save more lives,” Rajaratnam said.
