Ogun commits to zero maternal, child mortality

Ogun State government has pledged to ensure zero maternal and child mortality, through qualitative and efficient health care delivery.
Wife of the state governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Olufunsho Amosun, at the flag-off ceremony of the December Round of Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Week (MNCHW), and induction of Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent Health Champions (RMNCAH), held at Sango Primary Health Centre, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Council Area of the state, said the state was committed to improving maternal health and reducing child mortality, as no woman should die in the process of giving birth or children die during childbirth.

















Amosun noted that the MNCHW campaign was essential to ensuring progress in the realisation of children’s right to good healthcare and best start in life, adding that it aimed at improving the healthcare of the whole family, especially pregnant women and children under five.
