Chief Director of the Ministry of Health (MoH), Dr Afisah Zakariah has called on all civil society groups, NGOs and other stakeholders to augment government’s efforts in helping to reduce maternal mortality in the country.

Dr Zakariah is urging all health practitioners, especially midwives to be swift in attending to health concerns of pregnant women to help prevent any health-related issues which could lead to maternal mortality.

According to her, in order to reduce maternal mortality, there is the need for all stakeholders to come on board to support government to curb the menace.

She made the call during a conference by the MoH on Tuesday, 14 November as part of the campaign against maternal mortality in Africa.

Meanwhile, a Deputy Minister of Health, Tina Naa Ayeley Mensah said the ministry is putting adequate measures in place to ensure they resource the various health facilities with adequate laboratories and staff to help attend to the concerns of pregnant women.

She said lack of adequate resources in our part of the world is a major contributing factor to maternal mortality which needs to be addressed.
