This report takes its inspiration from the United Nations Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child initiative, which calls for countries to do everything possible to protect the lives and futures of all women, children and adolescents. It uses a similar approach to the State of the World’s Midwifery (SoWMy) 2014 report, but focuses on  Papua New Guinea (PNG) and the 14 countries supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Pacific Sub-Regional Office (PSRO): Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Nauru, Niue, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
