Nigeria

Region: 

Nigeria suffers from some of the highest maternal and neonatal mortality rates in the world. In 2015, the maternal mortality rate was 814 per 100,000 live births and the neonatal mortality rate in the same year was 34 per 1,000 live births. Low use of skilled birth attendants has contributed to high mortality rates, with only 38% of births being attended by a skilled attendant in 2013.

TRAction is working on a study to better understand the recognition of maternal mortality warning signs in local communities in Nigeria.
