This information includes time sensitive reminders for such events as antenatal clinic visits and taking of malaria prevention medication.

Our Partners

There are different causes of maternal deaths with some stemming from maternal health illiteracy by expectant mothers. Poor infrastructure, ill equipped medical centres & cultural practices play a leading role in maternal deaths. A significant amount of these deaths can be prevented by adequate prenatal care, qualified health workers during delivery & proper postnatal care.

TARGETS

3.1 By 2030, reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births
