reducing neo natal death
PURPOSE OF PROJECT
As part of the dolly foundation areas of intervention seek the support of WiLDAF GHANA to register new born babies under the AW DECADE 2011
Reduce maternal mortality
Improve women health
The aim of the project was to reduce the high rate of child death between the age of 0 – 1year.
During this year most of children need several immunization , we believe that this project will help the mothers to take their children to the clinic to seek medical services.
SIXTY (60)babies were registered at Assin Akropong and bereku community.
Result and challenges
After the project , sixty new babies were registered.
In few weeks these babies would be unlisted into the health insurance for a year.
Due to high level of poverty among mother’s, babies above 2years were also not registered but due to financial constraint we could not register them.
Recommendation : we plead with others donor agencies to come and support this project to improve women and reduce high rate of child death.
