U.S. ranks lower than Iraq, Afghanistan on this list

There are few places that illustrate the fragility of life better than a neonatal intensive care unit.  Premature babies, hooked up to tubes and monitors, their tiny legs sticking out of the smallest of diapers: it's a sight can bring tears to your eyes and a prayer to your lips.

One in 10 children are born prematurely every year around the world.  That comes to about 15 million babies.

You may think developing countries like Belarus and Libya have more preemies than the United States. Think again.

A new study - the first of its kind - ranks preterm birth rates around the globe. The United States comes in at 131 on the list of 184 countries.

According to the new report, Born Too Soon: The Global Action Report on Preterm Birth, twelve in every 100 babies born in the U.S. are premature. Belarus has the lowest preterm birth rate in the world (4.1 in 100) while Malawi has the highest (18 in 100). 

More than a million premature babies die each year. It's the No. 1 cause of death among newborns. And it's a major health concern because babies born prematurely can have breathing problems, cerebral palsy and intellectual disabilities.

"This report should be a call to action," says Chris Howson, vice president for global programs at the March of Dimes, one of the groups behind the report. "We are one of the countries with one of the highest survival rates, but we are not leading in preventing preemies."

So why is the premature birth rate higher in the U.S. than in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan

Howson says it's largely because women are having babies later in life, the increased use of fertility drugs and more C-sections and inductions.

Another thing at play, says Howson, is the lack of care some women - in particular minorities - get during pregnancy. For example, if diabetes is diagnosed early, it can be treated more successfully.  That, according to Howson, doesn't happen enough.

"It is absolutely critical that we provide the services that make it accessible to all women in this country, especially in the early stages of pregnancy," he says.

The study also looks at American premature births state-by-state.  Funding the report were the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, Save the Children and The World Health Organization.

      Did anyone stop and think that we have lower survival rates and higher premature rates because these babies are actually born? If mothers miscarry because of a REAL lack of health care the dead fetus doesn't even get included in a study like this.

      If you want to solve overpopulation, then work towards improving the living conditions in the rest of the world. Most first world countries' population is decline because people have less kids when they are well off and there's a great chance their child will survive. It's in poor countries where most families are having many children.

      Population control is extremely important. I would never advocate legal controls on family size, as China has, but the fact is the entire world has benefited ENORMOUSLY from China's "one child policy". It should be US government policy to make sure that every person in the world has access to birth-control if they want it.

      And the number one predictor of fertility rate (the number of kids an average woman in a country has)? Female education. Turns out, the more educated a woman is, the fewer children she will have. This is true in Christian countries, Muslim countries, Buddhist countries, and pretty much everywhere else.

      Access to birth control and education are all it takes!

      Demographics has a huge part of that number, though. The United States must support a massive influx of foreigners who generally have poor health care, particularly a huge number of illegals. Also, Americans are simply fat, and this is directly related to life expectancy. So not all of it can be blamed on the system.

      It is hard to compare to other countries because reporting is not the same. Using this article as an example, what is classified as a very premature birth in the US might be considered a miscarriage in many other countries if the baby didn't survive.

      Actually, the United States ranks high in longevity. Longevity has little to do with the health care system and much to do with things like lifestyle choices (we have higher rates of obesity, can you blame the healthcare system for that?) and genetics. You also can't compare figures from different countries because they calculate different things. They don't count things like murders and accidents.

      @Jerry, do you know how many Mexicans come across the border for ADEQUATE health care? I work in a pediatric ED in Arizona and I'd approximately 5% of our patients are brought by their parents illegally across the border in the dead of night because this child has a chronic condition and would die without the American healthcare system, they are often admitted to the Peds ICU, then upon discharge they disappear back to Mexico, leaving my hospital to compensate for the bill. (That's a big part of where your rising healthcare costs come from, by the way, people who just don't pay their bills-after Az Medicaid cuts in 2011, my hospital system lost over $300 million in unpaid medical bills-where's the outrage over that???) Mexican healthcare is good, if you have the cash up front to bribe the doctors and nurses into seeing you, which most native Mexicans don't have, but most "rich Americans" do.

    Howson postulates that the U.S. premature birth rate is higher then Afghanistan and Iraq by saying that miniorties in the U.S. don't get adequate care. That doesnt make any sense. Even if minorities in america do not get the best health care, I'm sure minorities get much better care in the U.S. then people in afghan and iraq. If anything comparing these parts of the country seems to suggest that an increase in health care services yields an increase in premature birth rates.

    This is real simple people. And it in NO way says that the health care in the US is worse than Iraq. The fact that Howson is claiming poor access to care is NOT backed up by the study. What is true is what the study DID point at. That Americans BETTER access to health care is leading them to risk pregnancies much later in life, or try fertility treatments not available in some of these other countries, which are huge risks for premature births. Lots of heath care, lots of Americans with access to cash to pay for fertility treatments, and people putting off kids for careers. THERE IS YOUR REASON. Pretty simple really.

    Preemies and pediatric surgery is the next housing crisis, so to speak. There's way to many liabilities in paying big dollars to bring in babies to this world who might cost as much each year of their life. We need a national debate on this issue. It's too easy to be called insensitive when doing the numbers and saying "You can' have that baby. You need to try again."

    All my children will be considered premature by this study because they were delievered by C-section. Our first child was breech (feet first), so we had to cut her out. In Iraq or Afghanistan she would have been delivered normally and could have died are be paralyzed. I choose C-Section and call her a premie!
    Our healthcare is the best in the world, don't be deceived!! More babies are born premature in the US because we detect issues and get them out premature to save them. Few other societies can do that! Others place they lose children.

    The explanations don't make a whole lot of sense. American women may be more likely to have their first pregnancy later in life, but that doesn't not mean that they are more likely to have children later in life. Women in Afghanistan and Iraq (particularly the former) have limited if any access to birth control, so they are likely to keep getting pregnant until menopause if they are married. Do you think Middle Eastern women just get to close their legs once they hit 40? A lot of them don't have much of a meaningful choice in the matter. A lot of them (at least the poorer, less educated ones) haven't even considered the idea that they could use birth control without the consent of their husbands or, Allah forbid, actually say NO when their husbands want sex. So many of their men (again, largely the poorer and less educated ones) see them as having no legitimate purpose in their lives other than to satisfy their husbands and raise their children. If we don't do something about the fundie Christians in this country, we won't be far behind.

    Nothing of note here. We have more preemies because our health system allows American mothers to carry risky pregnancies further, which would ordinarily end in miscarriages in other less-developed countries.

      Exactly. What would have been an infant mortality statistic in one country is a saved premature infant in the U.S., thanks to better health care. That isn't a bad thing. It does, however, mean that we do have to be more concerned about health issues of premature infants. Are other western countries like Canada showing similar statistics would be the real question.

      The U.S. doesn't encourage teen pregnancies with welfare per se. Although i agree it enables young women to get pregnant without doing what they should to take care of their child(ren). But if you look at younger women with children the welfare system has little to do with it.
      I, for example, had my child young. He was 12 weeks premature and I was 18 at his birth. Yes, food stamps and WIC assisted me in living but I had little choice but to apply for them. With no applicable work experience (very difficult to get a job that pays enough), living far away from the city, one vehicle for me and my husband, 2-8 appointments a week for my son (which i had to drive over half an hour to get to), unable to live with family, renting a trailer, bills, gas and food, it just wasn't possible for me to manage without a little assistance. And as far as having a child while knowingly unable to afford it, that wasn't the case in my situation. I was on birth control and unable to use protection due to an awful allergy. Think before you type, or at least include something that makes it apparent that you are not generalizing.

    There is also one more aspect to this: many of the premature babies born in US, delivered by C-section and cared for in NICUs, would never make it into the "live birth" counting in other countries. The still births or "babies lost at birth" in other parts of the world actually have more of a chance of survival in US, but they "increase" the number of "premature babies" compared to those countries. If you would compare the number of premature babies per number of pregnancies and not just premature+full term babies, the rankings might look a little different.

    You have to be careful how this data is compiled. Many counties don't count a fetus born before 30 weeks that dies as a death. At the same time many countries do not have as many mothers using crack and amphetamines as we do. To blame this on the health care system is comparing apples to oranges.

I know this flies in the face of what is said in the article but suppose a mother has a problem pregnancy. Proper health care might be able to get the pregnancy to the point of a premature baby, health care which is lacking might result in the death of the fetus, therefore fewer premature babies.

    If you don't insure the poor, they won't get prenatal care and the number of premature babies will go up. If you inseminate and implant 6 embryos, the number of premature babies will go up. If you have a scheduled c-section at 36 weeks because you want the baby out, the number of premature births go up. The greater the number of premature births, the higher the infant mortality rate. But no one wants to fix those problems, they just want to blame everyone else and thus the infant mortality rates stay higher in this country versus most other industrialized nations. Simple really.

    Did anyone think to see the positive side of the story? Maybe we are having a higher number of premature babies because through our healthcare system, at risk moms are being identified earlier than in other countries, allowing for medical interventions that allow mothers to carry these babies to an age where they are viable enough to warrant the NICU stay. This would change the statistics from mothers who would have miscarried or had stillborn children to mothers that have living children who, while born premature, were at least born ALIVE!
    So, yes, our rates of premature births are probably higher than Afghanistan or Iraq, but maybe it doesn't mean that our healthcare system sucks. I'll bet our rates of cancer are higher than Iraq also, maybe because of increased testing because of a WORKING (though imperfect) healthcare system? You don't know you have cancer if you are never tested for it.

      First of all, you have what you have, and that's all there is to that. But as for the premature ejoualaticn, make it a ritual habit to get exercise each time before attempting to have sex. The more oxygenated your blood stream, the stronger (stiffer) your erections will be and the more stamina you will have. Wearing condoms will help somewhat as will masturbating before you attempt to have sex with your wife, but knowing your own body and its responses is the best remedy you can have. Get in the habit of squeezing and releasing your PCG muscles periodically throughout the day .(this is the muscle that restricts the flow of urine, and developing this muscle to its peak will allow your member to jump at will. This will also give you greater control over your own orgasmic responses and will increase its intensity when you are ready to come.). Lastly, become aware of which positions give you the opportunity to cruise for long periods of time, and which ones will quickly wipe you out. Once you know that, avoid the wipe outs until you're ready to let it go. You'll be fine. (Besides, there's a lot more to having good sex than just using your penis. Become as well-rounded as you can.) Good luck.

    @keith its the prescription drugs.the doctors are the real drug dealers.enough high strength painkillers are prescribed to treat 80 percent of the population.most high strength painkillers are opiates(basicly heroine).2/3 of these premature babies are born withdrawing from opiate addiction.these pills that these doctors hand out like candy are worse than the worst street drugs.

    The numbers are simply a result of better reporting in the US, where we actually have the statistics. In afganistan, there is no gov't bean counter standing in some tent when the premie is born/dies. That person never existed. Also in countries like Norway, they refuse to save premature infants as late as 33weeks of gestation!!! They would save %99 in the US. The numbers are cooked.

      No, a UTI should not cause prtaemure ejaculation. I had a UTI and it was painful to ejaculate and it seemed slower. However there are ways to treat prtaemure ejaculation, in the sources I have included a link to a page that helped me a lot regarding prtaemure ejaculation. I hope it helps you like it has me.
