QUICK FACTS

A premature birth is when a baby is born alive before the end of the 37th week of pregnancy. A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. Premature babies generally weigh less than 2,500 grams. In 2015, for the first time, the complications of preterm birth outranked all other causes as the world’s number one killer of young children. Of the estimated 6.3 million deaths of children under the age of 5 in 2013, complications from preterm births accounted for nearly 1.1 million deaths. India has the highest number of preterm babies being born and the Infant Mortality Rate in the country is 40 per 1,000 live births.
