Let’s Go For That Sensationalistic Headline
While the article is written with the native Namibians mortality rates in mind, I somehow think Brangelina’s baby had a slightly better chance of survival. Those doctors and equipment that was flown in probably had something to do with it.
The infant mortality rate in Namibia, according to the CIA’s website, is 48.1 deaths per 1000 live births. In 2003, 21 percent of Namibians died of AIDS. Women are only expected to live to age 42 in Namibia. Men aren’t expected to live past their 44th birthday.
