A collaboration among individuals and institutions established in 2005, the Countdown aims to stimulate country action by tracking coverage for interventions needed to attain Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 – and, in addition, parts of Millennium Development Goals 1, 6 and 7.

The report contains profiles for each of the 68 Countdown priority countries. Benin is shown as an example in figure 2. Benin was selected because it is the first country profile (in alphabetical order) where data were available for all major indicator categories.
