State of inequality: reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health
The State of inequality: reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health report delivers both promising and disappointing messages about the situation in low- and middle-income countries. On the one hand,within-country inequalities have narrowed, with a tendency for national improvements driven by faster improvements in disadvantaged subgroups. In certain indicators and countries, these improvements have been substantial. On the other hand, however, inequalities still persist in most reproductive, maternal,newborn and child health (RMNCH) indicators. The extent of within-country inequality differed by dimension of inequality and by country, country income group and geographical region. There is still much progress to be made in reducing inequalities in RMNCH.The objective of this report is to showcase best practices in reporting the state of inequality in low- and middle-income countries using high-quality data, sound and transparent analysis methods, and user-oriented, comprehensive reporting.
