The well-being of children in the Asian and Pacific region has improved. Child and infant mortality rates have decreased, and there has been a noticeable improvement in immunization coverage. However, there has been slower progress in reducing the neonatal mortality rate, underweight prevalence among children under 5 years of age, and the absolute number of children suffering from being underweight.
