For 75 years, Finland's expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It's like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world's lowest infant mortality rates. The box includes very simple and day to day things and it has become age old tradition. And the report says that the box had helped to reduce infant mortality rates in Finland. Free distribution of this kind of box can also help developing countries to fight against infant mortality.
