Improving safe motherhood for Agonga community

By Mugisha Leonard | Communications Officer

In Uganda, many people have lost their loved ones due to very low standards of care at hundreds of private and government maternity facilities. Reports state that every day 16 women die from conditions related to childbirth, and 10 out of 100 children die at birth. More than 67% of births are unsupervised, and even when they are, the quality of medical services are very low; many birth centres lack resources and qualified staff.

Generally many rural based birth centres in Uganda are in a shocking state, with a lack of motivated and qualified staff and professionalism. To put a stop on this problem, KCIU embarked on constructing a maternity ward at Agonga Health Facility.

On 20  October 2021, we managed to open up our newly constructed Maternity ward at Agonga health facility to the community in order to expand our services to more mothers. Our task today is to equip the new maternity ward with vital equipments to carry out the necessary tests such as ultrasound scans to ensure Safety of the unborn babies as well as their mothers.

Our sicere gratitude goes to you our well wishers who have been so generous to the cause. We are grateful for your continued committment to the safety of mothers and their new babies in Agonga community.
