Countdown logo

An initiative related to the PMNCH and part of its advocacy and accountability work, the Countdown to 2015 Initiative collects and analyses data from 68 countries that account for at least 95 % of maternal and child deaths, working to create an account of progress towards the achievement of MDGs 4 and 5.

The Countdown Initiative has released Reports in 2005, 2008 and 2010 and produces country profiles that present coverage data for a range of key health services including: contraceptive use; antenatal care; skilled attendance at delivery; postnatal care; child health; financial investments in MNCH; equity of access, health systems and policy.
