What Choice do our Ugandan Mothers Have?

AUTHOR:Williams MoiSOURCE:keycorrespondents.org

Williams Moi is spot on regarding the plight of women of reproductive age in Uganda. LifeforMothers.org encountered the same challenges as described. Without a holistic/comprehensive strategy maternal/neonatal mortality will remain high and women along with their households will suffer. LifeforMothers employed CHWS who had mHealth technology (simple phones–not smart) and we were able to reach these women. The factors that restrict women from getting access to services are many, not limited to cultural, economic, transport, stigma, poverty and lack of education. What is required is strong political will to overhaul the health care system from within. This was include the empowerment of women and male partner involvement.
