Millennium Fellowship Project: Good Maternal Health

Mortality ratio is one global crisis which is always on the rise most especially in my community because most of the women are ignorant of the benefits of the maternal health care services before, during and after delivery. Most of these women undergo all trimesters without going for antenatal checkups and they normally face various complications during child birth resulting in death of mother, baby or both in severe cases. Most of these victim are non literates, teenagers and Aged women. With this initiative, my team and I intend to curb the situation by educating and informing not only women but also couples and the youth on the need for regular maternal checkups. We shall employ various channels of reaching out to our target audience without any form of barriers or resources. We shall also collaborate with other health organizations, personnel 's and any other individual or cooperate body that is passionate about maternal health care to support us achieve our aim. Our mission is to create a platform where women, married couples and the youth are been educated, and dedicated to patronize maternal health care services effectively and efficiently.
