State of the World's Mothers 2014 - Saving Mothers and Children in Humanitarian Crises 

Each day, an estimated 800 mothers and 18,000 young children die from largely preventable causes. Over half of these maternal and under-5 deaths take place in fragile settings,1 which are at high risk of conflict and are particularly vulnerable to the effects of natural disasters.2 The urgent task of completing the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals, and ending preventable child and maternal deaths, is increasingly concentrated in these contexts. Finding ways of meeting mothers' and children's health and nutrition needs in fragile states and humanitarian crises is central to this challenge. In Save the Children's 15th annual State of the World's Mothers report, we examine the impact of humanitarian crises on maternal, newborn and child survival in countries consistently ranked as the most difficult places to be a mother. Since the Mothers' Index was launched in 2000, the majority of the bottom 10 countries have been in the midst of, or emerging from, a recent humanitarian emergency.
