In Aotearoa/New Zealand in the period 2015–19, 2,666 pēpi, tamariki and rangatahi aged from 28 days to 24 years died. The most common causes of these deaths were suicide, transport incidents, cancers and sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI). Knowing that many of these deaths could be prevented drives home the importance and urgency of doing more to reduce child and youth mortality. This data report shows that while strong progress was made in reducing mortality rates among pēpi, tamariki and rangatahi in the past, momentum has been lost and mortality rates have been stagnant over the past five years.
