What are your aspirations for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health in Rwanda?

Though Rwanda has registered great achievements in the area of maternal, newborn and child health, some women, newborn under-five are still dying of preventable causes including post-partum hemorrhage (PPH), birth asphyxia and infection. This is due mainly to limited skills among health care providers. Therefore, my aspirations is to see the acceleration of reduction of morbidly and mortality among women, newborn and children through enhanced capacity of health care providers by mentorship. Likewise, strengthening community health worker’ capacity will contribute to the reduction of mortality and morbidity.
