Midwives championing women’s rights to quality health care’ by katty : May 09, 2019, 08:44:47 PM
The wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki, has said that midwives play a major role in championing, protecting and promoting the rights of women to good health.

Saraki said this on Tuesday in Lagos at an event jointly organised by Wellbeing Foundation Africa, Aspire Coronation Trust and ACT Foundation to mark the 2019 International Day of the Midwife.

She said, “All over the world, midwives are sacrificing their lives to ensure that every woman, irrespective of how remote they are located, can access proper reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health care, as well as nutrition health service.

The Chief Executive Officer of Wellbeing Foundation Africa, Mrs Amy Oyekunle, said the role of midwives as frontline health workers cannot be underestimated.

“They are strategically positioned to promote proper hygiene for mother and baby right from birth. We have, therefore, as the leading non-governmental organisation improving access to midwives in Africa partnered with the WHO, Unilever Lifebuoy and Sightsavers to promote Water, Sanitation and Hygiene across the various health care facilities, schools and local communities within the country. Through the dedicated efforts of our 70 plus midwives, we have taken our WASH programme to over 570 health care facilities across five states in Nigeria.”
