[NEWS] As Improved Maternal, Child Healthcare Gets Traction in Kaduna

孕產婦死亡率是聯合國(UN)的可持續發展目標(SDGs)之一,它專注於並積極採取行動來降低死於分娩原因的婦女的比例。 SEYI JOHN SALAU撰寫了MTN基金會與卡杜納州政府之間在解決該州長期流行病問題上的合作。


產婦死亡率(MMR)是每年因懷孕或其管理(不包括意外或偶然原因)相關或加重的任何原因而活產的女性死亡人數年。 MMR包括懷孕,分娩期間或懷孕終止後42天內的死亡,無論妊娠的持續時間和部位如何。

Maternal mortality is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nation (UN) that focuses and takes proactive actions in driving downward the rate of women who die in the cause of childbirth. SEYI JOHN SALAU writes on the collaboration between MTN Foundation and the Kaduna State government in addressing this age-long pandemic in the state.

Nigeria’s Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) has remained alarmingly high for several years despite promises and assurances from several governments to improve primary healthcare and bridge healthcare delivery in most parts of the country.

Maternal Mortality ratio (MM Ratio) is the annual number of female deaths per 100,000 live births from any cause related to or aggravated by pregnancy or its management (excluding accidental or incidental causes). The MM Ratio includes deaths during pregnancy, childbirth, or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, for a specified year.
