Somalia Listed as Worst Country for Maternal Health


Somalia’s health institutions collapse but the government and international partners The British aid group Save the Children ranks Somalia as the worst country on Earth for being a mother. The ranking is based on statistics for maternal health, child mortality, education and women’s income in Somalia. Nearly 25 years of instability has seen Somalia’s health institutions collapse but the government and international partners hope to soon change this narrative. Abdulaziz Billow reports for VOA from Mogadishu.
