A Mother’s Story

In Northern Nigeria, rates of maternal, newborn and child mortality are amongst the highest in the world.
This film looks at an innovative new programme that is helping local communities to improve the health services including antenatal and postnatal care, safer deliveries, care for newborns and infants, better nutrition, and routine immunization against preventable diseases.

The programme is funded and supported by UKaid from the Department for International Development and the State Department of the Norwegian Government.
