The 15th annual State of the World’s Mothers report examines the impact of humanitarian crises on maternal, newborn and child survival in countries consistently ranked as the most difficult places to be a mother. In this report, Save the Children examines the causes of maternal and child deaths in crisis settings, and suggests urgent actions needed to support mothers who are raising the world’s future generations under some of the most difficult circumstances.

This report looks in depth at four different countries impacted by humanitarian emergencies (Democratic Republic of the Congo; Syria; Philippines; and the United States). Two case studies examine the challenges facing mothers and children in situations of armed conflict.
