Kebbi Govt. seeks synergy with NGOs to reduce maternal mortality 

The Kebbi Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Halima Hassan-Kamba,

has called for synergy with donor agencies and NGOs to promote gender equality, nutritional value chain and to reduce maternal mortality in the state.

The commissioner made the call when she received members of NGOs in the state, who paid her a courtesy visit in her office in Birnin Kebbi.

The commissioner said that donor agencies and NGOs have vital roles to play in promoting gender equality, nutritional value chain and
reduce maternal mortality in the state and the country at large.

Hassan-Kamba said “the presence and activities of NGOs and donor agencies will promote healthcare services and reduce poverty among less privileged persons in the society.

“We need to collaborate in the areas of childbirth, nutrition, Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and maternal mortality, among others.”

She pointed out that arrangements had been concluded for the establishment of nutrition department in the ministry, which she said, would go a long way in supporting malnutrition activities in the state.
