The papers in the volume aim to bridge the disciplinary gap between biomedical and social scientists in the study of the determinants of mortality in human populations. The focus is on child survival in the developing world. The purpose is threefold: to propose a simple framework for interdisciplinary communication; to identify key determinants of morbidity and mortality and the methods of analyzing them developed by biomedical and social scientists; and to consider research needs and strategies for multidisciplinary studies on child survival. Examines the conceptual framework for studying child survival in developing countries, nutrition, infectious and parasitic diseases, socioeconomic variables, including maternal education and technology, analytical methods, including those determining child mortality and modelling of infectious diseases control programmes, and case studies in Jordan, Malaysia, India, Panama, Guatemala, and Bangladesh. -from Editors
