This is the sixth report based on the Rapid Mortality Surveillance (RMS) system that provides timely empirical estimates of the mortality-based high-level indicators for Outputs 1 and 2 of the health-related targets of the Negotiated Service Delivery Agreement (NSDA) and progress towards the targets of the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) up to 2016. Estimates of the neonatal mortality rate (NMR) and the maternal mortality ratio (MMR) cannot, however, be obtained from this source. The NMR up to 2016 is based on adjusted data from the District Health Information System (DHIS) and the MMR on adjusted data from cause-of-death data from Stats SA up to 2015.
