Grassroot advocacy for improve maternal health
Mar 19, 2010

The lacking of support in rural community which drives women from accessing antenatal care , preventing them from taking early action to maintain good health and from adopting safe behaviors in order to avoid complications in pregnancy such as fracture and injury, excessive flow of blood from the brain, perpetual psychosis, pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. This lack of support is in turn due to reasons of culture, poverty, poor systematic programming and inadequate spending for maternal health by the government. In some areas, pregnant women lost their life as a result of lack of knowledge about the sign of complications in pregnancy and danger signals during labour.
On the other hand, the health sector spending by the government is most often tends to target the construction and rehabilitation of health facilities which is extremely important, but can not on it own lead to a realization of the health sector policy target which tends to revolve around the MDG such as reduction of infant and maternal mortality rate.

The program is new. It will work closely with TBAs and other critical stakeholders in grassroots advocacy for improve maternal health. It is consistent with Kaduna State Strategic Health Development Plan 2010 – 2015 and will contribute to MDG 4, 5 and 8. It is expected that through conscious grouping of mostly TBAs, retired midwives, community health extension workers and strategic women groups residing in the grassroots, a core volunteer advocates for improve maternal health will emerged. Who will form the resources for establishing a support system in rural neighborhoods for reduction of maternal deaths? These advocates will continue dissemination of maternal health information and create demand for services and recognize the high risk groups (women in purdah) to increase coverage. Consequently, it can be sustain through strategic policy advocacy for it to be integrated into the State Maternal, New born and Child Health program.

There are many reason why women may choose not to access healthcare. For example, in Sierra Leone, many pregnant women will not access health care facilities out of fear that they will have to pay high health care costs. This issue has been addressed by the government of Sierra Leone introducing free health care to women and young children of Sierra Leone. However, due to the new emergence of the Ebola outbreak, women again are refraining from accessing health care out of fear that they may contract Ebola. How do you think these barriers can be addressed for women in Sierra Leone?
