Figure 2

Non-SBA birth projections. Projections for the estimated number of non-SBA births in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa during the period 2011-2015 inclusive for the six scenarios set out in Table 1. Total non-SBA births over both regions are given to the nearest 5 million. In all scenarios, at least 90% (85%) of estimated non-SBA births were in rural areas for South Asia (sub-Saharan Africa). Note that we were not able to calculate estimates for Senegal, Mayotte, Seychelles and Tanzania.
