Maternal & Child Health: COI

The Maternal & Child Health COI

In an effort to strengthen our understanding of how health exists in Sammie Town we re-surveyed the community, house to house. We were able to know that 42% of the population in Sammie Town is composed of pregnant women, children, and lactating mothers. We choose to address the maternal and child health issue in Sammie Town through the following strategies: 
  • House to house sensitization - on proper health seeking behaviors for pregnant women, lactating mothers, and children under 5.
  • Sensitization – on free family planning services and fistula counseling we planned to facilitate through partnerships with Marie Stopes and Aberdeen Women’s Centre
  • Teaching - poverty is not a barrier to good health 
  • Nutritional Counseling – on how to achieve a health balanced diet.
  • Advocacy
