Challenge

Non use of skilled birth attendants contribute more to preventable daily maternal deaths of over 800 women globally (Licentto et al,2010). With high level of poverty in the country, financial cost could pose barriers to the use of ANC services by some women, particularly the most vulnerable (Fagbamigbe and Idemudia,2015)

Solution

This project will provide free antenatal care to the pregnant women and retrain health workers on women care, during pregnancy and after delivery. It will also work with the existing health structures, relevant stakeholders and community groups to encourage utilisation of antenatal care services provided by government recognised health facilities and skilled healthcare professionals.

Long-Term Impact

The project will break the barriers of non utilisation of antenatal care services as a result of poverty by providing all the drugs, consumables and other antenatal neccessities at a free cost. It will also prevent maternal and child mortality through retraining of participating health workers for effective skills in maternal and child care; prevention of birth related complications.
