      World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia (‎SEA-CAH-11, 2012)‎
      With improvements in the management of major causes of neonatal mortality such as infection and asphyxia, birth defects are increasingly seen as a major cause of stillbirths and neonatal deaths.

In view of this, the World Health Assembly adopted WHA Resolution 63.17 in May 2010, which identified actions to address birth defects to impact stillbirths and neonatal mortality. In response the South-East ...
    • Prevention and control of birth defects in South-East Asia Region: strategic framework (‎2013-2017)‎ 

      World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia (‎SEA-CAH-12, 2013)‎

However, mortality from birth defects has remained constant, which has resulted in it becoming a larger proportional cause of infant mortality.
