    Estimates of the number of infant and child deaths in Indonesia in 1983 are first presented by province using official data. The author then attempts to determine the number of such deaths that can be considered preventable. It is concluded that about 60 percent of infant deaths and 71 percent of deaths among children aged one to four could be avoided by the implementation of more effective hygiene and preventive medical programs.
