In his welcome address the Executive Chairman Adamawa State Primary Health Care Development Agency Dr Abdullahi Dauda Belel ably  represented by Director community health services of the agency Hajiya Hauwa Musa said the training is timely and will  improve the capacity and skills of health workers to deliver good and qualitative healthcare service delivery

Declaring the training open, the Hon. Commissioner Ministry of Health Dr Fatima Atiku Abubakar ably represented by the permanent secretary Dr. Ahmed Garba said the core objective of the training is to complement government’s effort to improve knowledge and skills of health workers, reduce rate of maternal and child mortality and morbidity in the state.

80% of all maternal deaths result from five complications that are well understood and can be readily treated: haemorrhage, sepsis, eclampsia, complications of abortion and obstructed labour. We know how to prevent these deaths.
To reduce maternal mortality it is important that all women have access to maternal health care services, particularly skilled attendance at birth and timely access to Essential (or Emergency) Obstetric Care (EOC) when an obstetric complication occurs.
“63 health workers from the 21 local government areas of the state were selected for the training” Dr Fatima added

She called on all the participants to concentrate and remain committed throughout the training period.

Dignitaries that grace the occasion are: Deputy permanent secretary Mrs Rhoda Zira Yohanna  Executive Secretary Adamawa state Agency for the Control of HIV/AIDS Dr. Stephen John, Provost College of nursing and Midwifery Yola Mal. Abubakar Sadiq Salihu, program manager state essential drugs program pharmacist Abbayero, Program Manager, Save One Million Lives Program and host of others.
