On May 6 Save the Children launched its annual State of the World’s Mothers report, which compiles global statistics on the health and well-being of mothers and children, and uses them to produce rankings of the best and toughest places to be a mother. This year’s report focuses on the impact of humanitarian crises on maternal, newborn and child survival in countries consistently ranked as the most difficult places to be a mother. The report highlights how in some of the world’s most fragile countries, health workers dedicated to saving lives are being attacked.
