A promise renewed

Liberia has made remarkable progress during the first decade of peace since the end of the 14-year civil war. According to the 2012 progress report of A Promise Renewed, the infant and under-five mortality rates were 58 and 78 per 1,000 live births respectively in 2010, a decline of over 68% from the 1990 levels of 241/1,000 (U-5MR), representing a remarkable annual reduction of about 5.4%. The maternal mortality rate is 770/100,000 (WHO, 2012 report) while stunting prevalence in children <5years of age is 36% (FSNS, 2012).
