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
