Optimizing Primary Health Care For Skilled Maternal Health Care in Rural Nigeria
Nigeria has the second highest number of maternal deaths in the world, with only 35% of births attended by skilled birth attendants (SBA). Most women, especially those in rural areas rely on unskilled traditional birth attendants.
This webinar will present the findings from a 4-year research project that used community engagement to significantly increase the use of SBA. The presenters will also reflect on what the achievements mean for a sustainable increase in births attended by skilled personnel and reductions in maternal mortality in Nigeria and similar low-income countries.
This research was conducted by the Women’s Health and Action Research Centre (WHARC), a Nigerian non-governmental, non-profit organization, in collaboration with the University of Ottawa, Canada and the Ministry of health in Nigeria The research is part of the Innovating for Maternal and Child Health in Africa (IMCHA) initiative, jointly funded by Global Affairs Canada, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the International Development Research Centre.
This webinar is co-organized with the West Africa Health Organization, providing support to IMCHA research teams in the region for knowledge generation and uptake by decision-makers. The webinar will be in English and in French.
