Nigeria NICU Capacity Building
Go-MCH is working on Capacity Building in Maternity Hospitals and
Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) in Lagos, Nigeria.
A woman will probably never be closer to death than at the time she is giving birth.
Go-MCH’s Maternal and Newborn survival program is working to ensure that both mother and child survive through the childbirth process, and beyond so both mother and child can live healthy, successful lives.
Maternal and Newborn survival is a complex, multifaceted issue involving a variety of health and human resource systems, as well as the social, cultural, and political issues within the nation that the woman and child resides. This is further complicated by the issues that affects a woman’s health status and fetus through the pregnancy.
We are working to help improve community use and trust of healthcare and expand system capacity. Funds will facilitate partnership development and work on issues such as consumables, infrastructure, and human resources.
Individual donations will provide neonatal care to infants to support their survival and maternity care to the mother. We are developing a pilot program in Nigeria, with partners and Scientific Advisory Members in the field. Development of this program is a collaboration between our Scientific Advisory Board, Board of directors, and partners in the field.
