Deadline for manuscript submissions: Nov. 30, 2014

The essence of science in the twenty first century, arguably, is to enhance human existence in continuing societal advancement. The driving force for continuous advancement of societys include the promotion and strengthening of scientific and technological progress; evidence-, analytics-based and citizen-centric approaches; flexible policies and effective implementation and management. Whether the present trend in human existence will worsen due to human activities (including environment degradation, public and private policies or attitudes) thereby, leading to Dystopia or continuous scientific and societal advancement with citizen-centric policies in line with evidence- and analytics-based policy and decision-making might lead to Utopia in the future will probably, evolve as a matter of increasing debate in the next decades. This special issue is aimed at promoting discussion bordering on all areas of science and society, how they affect policy, implementation, management or human existence, and provide solutions to the problems that hamper the present or future existence.

We solicit for papers (contemporary reviews, original papers, hypothesis, perspectives, views and opinion containing high-quality artwork and require the use of mechanistic summary diagrams) from researchers, scientists, lecturers from all around the world.

    Abstract: To attain sustainable development goals, reduction in child mortality is necessary. However, a major challenge exists in the procurement of healthcare services by individuals which is determined to a large extent by their level of income. Adopting random effect and fixed effect methodology and using survey data from Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (2012) and General Household Survey (2012), this study examines the relationship between household income and child mortality. For the analysis, infant mortality rate, under-five mortality rate and neonatal mortality rate was modeled against household income and controlled for access to anti-natal care, access to safe water and sanitation, neonatal mortality rate, maternal education and household size in Nigeria. Results obtained show that household income has significant effect on neonatal mortality rate in Nigeria but household income has insignificant effect on infant and under-five mortality rates in Nigeria. Results also show that household size has significant effect on infant mortality rate and neonatal mortality rate in Nigeria. The study equally found that access to anti-natal care has significant effect on under-five mortality rate in Nigeria.
