Summary

Every 10 minutes,one woman dies on account of pregnancy or childbirth in Nigeria-UNICEF. 33% of neonatal deaths are attributed to infections; the main factors contributing to the high incidence of neonatal and maternal tetanus and sepsis is that majority of deliveries take place under unclean circumstances-WHO. This project provides clean delivery kits containing essential supplies required at childbirth to ensure a safe and hygienic delivery for 250 rural women in Afugiri, Abia State, Nigeria.

Challenge

There is only one Primary health center at Afugiri community, located at Umuakam village. It is poorly equipped and cannot adequately service the 11 villages that make up the community. Women who cannot afford medical care in the City, deliver at home or with traditional birth attendants under unhygienic conditions. They lack access to basic delivery items that can ensure hygienic delivery at home or at the health center.This results in high chances of infection, which often leads to death.

Solution

This project provides clean delivery kits containing essential sterilized items required at childbirth to ensure women have a safe and hygienic delivery, using WHO guidelines. It contains items such as,absorbent delivery mats, sterilized hand gloves,scalpel blades,mucus extractor,antiseptic liquid,cord ties and more. In addition women will receive training in local language on having a healthy pregnancy,importance of antenatal and post-natal visits, immunizations,vaccinations,hygiene and kit use

Long-Term Impact

This project will be scaled to all rural communities in the 17 local Government areas of Abia State, beginning from Afugiri. In addition to the Delivery Kit, beneficiaries will receive TREATED BEDNETS and FREE BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKS. This will result in reduction of cases of infections during delivery, malaria and lack of pregnancy health information. This will contribute to a reduction of the high rate of maternal and infant mortality in Abia State Nigeria.
