According to World Bank, Pakistan's infant and child mortality rate is the highest in South Asian region with prevalence of childhood diarrhoea and acute respiratory infections both associated with poor environmental quality and water contamination. Furthermore, Pakistan has emerged as the most populated and urbanized country in South Asia where more than one third of its population is living in towns and cities.
