Synopsis: 
Registration of stillbirths (69%) and under-five deaths (79%) improved from 1998–2008. Stillbirth certificates lacked cause of death information and neonatal deaths due to prematurity and birth asphyxia were often misclassified. Stillbirth, infant and under-five mortality rates were 15, 20 and 22/1000, respectively.
