Infant Protection Day is celebrated on 7 November. The day aims to celebrate the day to spread awareness about the safety of infants and protect their lives by taking proper care of infants. It should be made aware that due to the lack of proper protection and proper care, newborns face a lot of problems.
Infant mortality in India:
In India, the infant mortality rate is higher as compared to other countries due to the lack of health care. The government has announced an effective measure to prevent infant mortality by implementing it. Due to the lack of basic health services, lack of awareness, and the increasing burden of the population, there has not been an expected reduction in infant mortality. Infants are tomorrow’s citizens, and it is necessary to protect them as they are the future of the world. The Indian government has initiated various schemes for the benefits of the infants.
