The infant mortality rate in these 3 years was 3,8 per 1000 live births. 1999 exhibited the best result with a rate of 1.8 per 1000 live births. The early neonatal component was 3,1 per 1000 live births (22 deaths) representing 81,7% of the total deaths whereas the late neonatal component was 0,4 per 1000 live births, with 3 deaths, which represented 11,1% of the total number of dead infants.
