Babita Bain | Jitendra Kumar Premi 
Abstract: Children are important properties of a country, for that reason, diminution in infant and child mortality is likely the most important purpose of the Millennium Development Goals. Neonatal survival is a very sensitive indicator of population growth and socio-economic development. World Health Organization has generated enormous data related to these kinds of research. It has provided definitions, terminologies and technical guidelines in addition to throwing valuable information on fetal and infant death across the countries. Theoretically, these types of research have mainly quantitative though partially qualitative while on the basis of applied perspectives, it could be diagnostic as well as exploratory in nature. Multi-stage random sampling can be appropriate sampling for the study of concerning issues. Structured Interview Schedule will be used for interviewing the women, to provide a complete reproductive history of the births. This information will be used to calculate norms for direct estimates of fetal and infant mortality, according to Barfield & Committee on Fetus and Newborn. The result of these types of studies will identify the root causes of fetal and infant death in the tribal and rural settings of India. It would improve our understanding of the causes of failure of the health services in tribal and rural regions. Besides, it can be of help, to design the new health strategies and programs for the tribal and rural India. On the basis of above all discussion, it is urgent need to conduct such type of research in tribal and rural India.
