LFT Zanzibar, Tanzania 🇹🇿 -Maternal Health Facilities
LFT Zanzibar, Tanzania 🇹🇿 – On the beautiful day of Friday, it was amazing to receive this update from Zanzibar.
From the time that the LFT started it’s intervention for enhancing maternal health facilities in Zanzibar in 2020, the rate of maternal deaths in Zanzibar has decreased by 38%. That is an incredible reduction.
What’s also a great cause for celebration is that fewer mothers are having to be referred to the Mnazi Mmoja central hospital due to complications that could be avoided by earlier interventions in remote areas.
With an accelerated implementation of the nutrition plan for expectant and new mothers initiated during the Ramadhan food basket distribution, and the building of capacity for clinical workers and equipment for mothers to have a minimum of eight routine visits a month we hope to drive this down by an additional 20% by the end of 2023!
A great outcome enabled by your generosity.
