Picture story: Saving India's poorest babies
Friday 16 March 2012
In India more people live in poverty than in the whole of Africa. It is a region where the most vulnerable women, babies and children are hit the hardest.
Britain is working with the Government of Odisha, one of India's poorest states, to build up government-led health services, which alongside support from UNICEF, bring healthcare to all rural communities.
Last year the lives of 7,500 newborn babies were saved in Odisha because of better support for mums from healthcare services.
In this picture story you can see how community health workers, groups of grannies and soap opera stars are coming together, with British support.
