From: How many births in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia will not be attended by a skilled birth attendant between 2011 and 2015?

  Annual% change in SBA delivery based on current trend More optimistic projection of annual% change in SBA delivery * Very optimistic projection of annual% change in SBA delivery High fertility assumption for projected births Low fertility assumption for projected births

  1. The six scenarios used in the analysis, each of which assumes one of three projections in changes in SBA attendance and one of two fertility assumptions regarding projected number of births. *Annual percentage change is double (quadruple) the current trend, but for any given country, this value is capped at the maximum observed current trend across all countries (Bhutan, 17% annual improvement). A lower bound of zero was applied to all scenarios.
