State of the World's Mothers 2011: Champions for children

In commemoration of Mother’s Day, Save the Children is publishing its twelfth annual State of the World’s Mothers report, which demonstrates where mothers fare best and worst. The report features essays from prominent individuals making the case for why governments should continue to invest in maternal and child health programs. Millions of children are alive today because of past investments in lifesaving programmes. But the work is not done. Each day, 22,000 children still perish, mostly from preventable or treatable causes. While many countries are making progress, many still need help. This report identifies countries that are lagging behind in the race to save lives. It also shows that effective solutions to this challenge are affordable – even in the world’s poorest countries.
