Aisha Buhari Lays Foundation For 50-Bed Maternity Clinic In Katsina

Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has identified maternal and child mortality as a serious health challenge, which requires support from all quarters before it can be tamed.

She was speaking during foundation stone laying ceremony of a Maternity Clinic at the Daura General Hospital, Katsina state, on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

Mrs. Buhari lamented the challenges women face trying to access medical care during pregnancy, at childbirth and while raising their babies.

“Women go through serious challenges when they are at their most vulnerable state, so they need a lot of support. This support is one of the mandates of Future Assured, my programme.” She said.

This project, she said, will also support Federal Government’s policy of establishing healthcare facility in every political unit in the country..

“The Maternity Ward is another way of reducing the challenges faced by women and making their lives better.”

She drew attention to the need for stakeholders to pay more attention to the needs of women in all communities.
