 State of the Worlds Mothers 2010: Women on the Front Lines of Health Care Photo credit: Michael Bisceglie

Countries must invest in women who are front-line health care workers, says Save the Children in its new report on the State of the World's Mothers 2010.

To highlight how investments in women health workers on the front lines can save children's lives, the Ad Council and Save the Children have launched a public service advertising campaign and companion website GoodGoes.org.
