Giving birth in Nigeria did not stop because of #COVID19. Why then should we stop campaigning and charting a better future for women in Nigeria, pregnant women who must safely give birth and nursing mothers who must safely transition from pregnancy to motherhood?
In the past year and a half, Nigeria Health Watch, EpiAfric and Africare have surveyed communities across Nigeria, seeking to learn the health-seeking behaviours of women in these local communities, making inquiries into the deaths of some of these women during childbirth and advocating for collaboration among key stakeholders that would ensure that no woman dies while bringing forth life.
As our window to South-West Nigeria, Lagos is our sixth and final stop in our state-level campaign to bring different stakeholders from each of our six target states, to chart a plan for access to quality maternal care for women.
Join us this Friday, 29 May 2020 from 12-1 pm as we speak to the public sector, facility level, and community-level stakeholders on ways in which each party: the woman, family, community, traditional institutions, religious leaders, professional groups, health facility, and the government can contribute to creating a Lagos State where no woman dies while giving life and where we can truly #EndMaternalMortality
This program is supported by funding from MSD, through MSD for Mothers, the company’s $500 million initiative to help create a world where no woman dies giving life.
