A non-governmental organisation, The Well-being Foundation, will together with Office of the First Lady of Kwara State, host officials of the Federal Ministry of Health and other stakeholders across different states in the country, at a three-day meeting of the Nigerian Integrated Maternal and Child Health Records in Ilorin, Kwara State, between today and September 21, 2007.

In a statement by a spokesman of the organisation, Mr Niran Adedokun, the Well-being Foundation has been working with the Federal Ministry of Health since last year, on ways of reducing maternal and child mortality ratio in Nigeria, in line with the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Four and Five. According to him, this collaboration with the Family Health Division of the Federal Ministry of Health eventually culminated in the recently launched Integrated Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Strategy, specifically targeted at reducing the country’s high rate of maternal mortality. “We are all in agreement that there needs to be an integrated approach to the delivery of healthcare in our country through effective means, hence the introduction of home-based records for the effective monitoring of health indices covering all the geographical zones.” It is expected that at the end of the conference, all existing data collection tools for maternal, newborn and child health including the Nigerian Integrated Maternal and Child Health Record would be harmonised for the greatest impact across Nigeria . “It is our belief that if Nigeria is not to be left behind in the attainment of the significant reduction of maternal mortality and child mortality by 2015, government policy backed by effective action by all stakeholders must be our goal.”

Also expected at the harmonisation meeting are the Honourable Minister of Health, Professor Adenike Grange, the Wife of the Kwara State Governor and President of the WellBeing Foundation, Mrs Toyin Saraki and representatives of donor agencies and international development agencies
