Just to clarify. Now that I have checked the detailed numbers, the contrast if even more stark than suggested already. In recent years, the total number of deaths in Sri Lanka have been slightly more than 110,000 per year. Of these, the total annual deaths from ALL conditions in children aged less than 5 years, & ALL deaths due to any maternal or nutritional condition, & ALL injuries (including violence, accidents, suicide, etc) is less than 20,0000.
