In this publication, Countdown to 2015 provides profiles for the countries where more than 95% of all maternal and child deaths occur. The profiles highlight how well each country is doing in increasing coverage of high-impact interventions that can save the lives or millions of women and children.

The core indicators included in these profiles, selected in 2011 by the Commission on Information and Accountability for Women's and Children's Health, encompass key elements of the reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) continuum or care. A snapshot of progress on these core indicators, across the priority countries, reveals promising news as well as challenges that still remain to be addressed.
