Longer birth intervals can reduce infant mortality in poor countries

Molitoris, Joseph LU (2019) In N-IUSSP
Abstract
Recent work on wealthy populations has called into question long-standing conclusions about the importance of birth spacing for infant health. Using data from 77 countries, Joseph Molitoris and colleagues show that spacing births beyond 24 months can greatly reduce infant mortality risks, but that the benefits of birth spacing decline with socioeconomic and demographic development.
