The announcement also shows the differences among developed countries and Third World countries.

For example in Ethiopia only six percent of births receive assistance. In total there are 50 million women worldwide who die each year from giving birth without receiving qualified help. But in Norway health personnel are present at almost every birth.

Also one in every seven women will lose their life during pregnancy or childbirth in Niger. In Spain the risk is much less with one in every 16,400 women.

‘Save the Children’ also includes in its announcement recommendations to improve the wellbeing of mothers like increasing investment in education for mothers and girls or improving maternal and child healthcare.
