It is a sad reality that 1 out of every 200 women will die while giving life- at birth in Kenya. 1 out of 20 children may never live to see their first birthday.
Lack of information and knowledge about pregnancy, lack of quality care, accessibility to health care centers and lack of skilled attendants at birth are among the reasons for these deaths in women at birth.
Infections, malnutrition and diarrheal diseases are the commonest killers of the newborn baby.
As a country, we should meet the objectives of the Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 by 2015. MDG 4 to Reduce Infant Mortality and MDG 5 to Improve Maternal Health are still far from being achieved. We all have a role to play in this. Educate and support each other towards the best maternal and infant care.
Help Kenya achieve MDG 4 and 5 by 2015.
