According to a study by Jordan's Higher Population Council (HPC), around 75% of all neonatal deaths in the country might be prevented with proper care, Jordan Times has reported. The study, which was conducted in collaboration with Unicef, the UN Population Fund, and other governmental and non-governmental bodies, tracked over 20,000 births and found that 30% of the newborn deaths it registered were definitely preventable, while another 44% were possibly preventable with optimal care. Respiratory distress syndrome was the leading cause of death among newborns, accounting for 53.5% of neonatal deaths, followed by sepsis (16.2%), congenital anomalies (13.8%) and asphyxia (10.1%).
