Reducing maternal mortality, Hotoro North, Kano State, Nigeria - Mustapha Usman Ado

A picture taken at Hotoro North area of Kano State Nigeria, where I had discussion with the religious and traditional leaders on their role in reducing maternal mortality.

The leaders agreed to form committees in their respective wards that will ensure:

  1. Pregnant women attend ANC
  2. Advocate for voluntary blood donation from communities in case of obstetric haemorrhage
  3. All pregnant women in labour must be brought to deliver in the hospital.

I dressed like other community members in cream colour (with glasses) sitting next to a member in brown.
