Emergency Obstetric Care

"Complications of labour and childbirth contribute a significant portion to the causes of maternal mortality. While most of these complications can neither be forecasted nor prevented, many of them can be managed successfully without loss of life if recognized early and treated effectively. Emergency obstetric care services form a very important and integral part of the strategies for the prevention of maternal morbidity and mortality. It is, however known that while these services may be available at referral centres, their utilization by women who need them may be prevented by the issue of cost of care. The leading barrier to health care for Nigerian women and children is getting money for treatment . Cost is shown to be an important factor in determining utilization of emergency obstetric care services especially in resource poor countries. In their effort to improve access to maternity and neonatal care services and hopefully address MDGs 4 and 5, some state governments in Nigeria introduced packages for free maternal health services.
