The purpose of this study is to determine health related factors that affect neonatal, post neonatal, infant and child mortality. For this, the data is collected using multistage sampling technique and direct method of mortality estimation, contingency analysis and logistic regression procedure has been applied. The results show post-neonatal mortality rate (PNNMR) is higher for the children who are not immunized at all (e.g., PNNMR is 250.00 per 1000 live births). The infant of the house gets treatment facility from traditional sources considerably have higher mortality and also respondents who have not taken medical check up, while lower in mothers’ child who get sufficient medical check up (e.g. child mortality rate (CMR) is 6.13 per1000 live births). The Chi-square (χ2) test result implies that immunization, treatment place and medical check up during pregnancy are highly significantly associated with neonatal, post neonatal, infant and child mortality. Multivariate analysis results designate immunization, types of delivery, medical check up duration of pregnancy and health check up for child have crucial influence on mortality of post-neonatal period but in infant and child period, immunization practices and treatment place of women have significant effects on mortality. Therefore, women are required to bring in cycle of women-child health awareness based programme and community health system to reduce infant and child mortality in Bangladesh.
