Area(s) of interest/priority in Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (SRMNCAH):
- Maternal/reproductive health
- Newborn health
- Child health
We have been advocates for maternal health at the grass roots level and have succeeded in getting commitments from medical experts in industrialised countries to provide equipment, material and training particularly in reducing haemoraging and pre-eclampsia in Nigeria and Ghana. We plan to extend our reach to 3 more countries in Africa in 2011. We have a fundraising activity in December 2010 with a target to raise $50,000 to contibute to the Fistula Foundattion. We expect to surpass our target.
