Maternal & Neonatal Health Unit
Maternal & Neonatal Health
No woman should die while giving life, a death due to pregnancy is catastrophic and an untenable blow to the foundation of a nation. Giving life is designed to be a joyous moment, not one fraught with perils of death or maiming complications.
The MNH Unit recognizes the urgency of eliminating preventable pregnancy related deaths that sadly continue to take about 5,000 of our mothers to early graves each year. The Unit works towards keeping its commitment to attaining zero preventable pregnancy related deaths.
The MNH Unit works to amplify the tremendous benefits of the Linda Mama Programme that has seen 8 in 10 women delivered by skilled health care provider from a low of 4 in 10 women at the conception of the Linda Mama health benefit and insurance Programme.
