Over 600 pregnant women from 16 communities in the South-east and South-south regions of the country have benefited from a maternal health initiative aimed at reducing maternal mortality in the country.

The programme, which was held across six states of the regions was organized by Etisalat Nigeria in partnership with a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Traffina Foundation for Community Health.

The beneficiary states include; Imo, Enugu, Anambra, Delta, Edo, and Cross River states. As part of the exclusive packages for participation, the pregnant women were given free safe delivery kits which include essential items and consumables for pregnant women. In addition, they were taken through series of lectures on maternal health delivery by a team of medical experts.

Speaking on the rationale behind the programme, Mohammed Suleh-Yusuf, the Head of Government and Community Relations, Etisalat Nigeria said that the company’s intervention with the maternal health initiative was a direct reflection of its belief in quality partnership and support for ongoing efforts towards producing a healthy citizen.The maternal health initiative is a CSR-based programme of the telecommunications company.
