Stella commented on IMPROVING MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH CARE

Hi Kate.
Thanks for your questions.

The program is more of improving the health care given to the mother and child in terms of focused antenatal care, labor and delivery, child wellness(immunizations, growth monitoring, nutrition). Owing to the challenges we face in my community, most mothers and babies are not able to receive these services appropriately. some of the resources that would ensure success for the program are IEC materials for the mothers and health care providers, well equipped laboratory to ensure antenatal profiles for mothers and any other required tests are done, standard delivery room and materials e.t.c. the program once started should be continuous.
