Conventional theories would not predict the 60% decline of infant mortality which has occurred among the Hmong population of Thailand, from 123/1000 in the mid-1960s to 48 in the mid-1980s.
The Hmong population in northern Thailand has sustained high fertility and low use of modern health services.
Most Hmong live in relatively remote rural villages and earn their living by self-employed farming.
They have low levels of education, especially for women.
They live in multi-generational patrilineal-patrilocal extended family households.
Women's status is low.
