Noting that the well-being of children and that of mothers cannot be separated, this report uses the Mothers' Index to compare the well-being of mothers and children in 17 developed countries and 77 developing countries. The Mothers' Index is a composite of elements contributing to a woman's well-being, including health status, educational status, and political status, and children's well-being. Data were based on published statistics from governments, international agencies, and research institutions. In addition, the report compares 42 developed countries and 98 developing countries, using the Girls' Investment Index, an assessment of the current status of girls and young women and comprised of indicators in four areas: safe motherhood, young motherhood, girls' health, and girls' education. This report confirms the preceding year's finding that the well-being of women and children is inextricably linked and makes a strong case that an investment in girls and young women will pay off in their own lives and in the lives of their children. Investments in safe motherhood programs and practices and in education for girls and women appear the most essential. National wealth alone does not guarantee the health and well-being of mothers and children. Recommendations from the analysis include the following: (1) ensure access to key components of safe motherhood--prenatal health care, skilled health assistance at birth, emergency obstetric care, and modern contraception; (2) expand educational opportunities for girls and women; and (3) develop policies and programs to protect women and girls from hiv/aids and from gender-based violence. Appended is each country's score for each component of the two indices, a description of the methodology, and research notes. (Contains 31 footnotes.) (Kb)
