Abiye (SafeMotherhood) Programme

Traditional birth Attendants (TBAs) and Faith Based Organization (Mission Homes) have established a working arrangement on ways on eradicate maternal mortality

Dr. Dayo Adeyanju, who disclosed this at the launch of Agbebiye Initiative, said it was borne out of the need to ensure safe delivery for all pregnant women in order to achieve zero maternal death.

According to him, some pregnant mothers still visit these homes.

Dr. Dayo Adeyanju said the TBAs and Mission Homes were expected to refer all pregnant women who visited their facilities for delivery to the health facilities where skilled birth attendants were available.

Adeyanju said the TBAs would be paid for each of the pregnant mother directed to hospitals for safe delivery based on the coupon/voucher system He said:

"A total of 618" pregnant women were referred to health facilities within six months by 137 TBAs/Mission Homes with 362 deliveries of which there was no maternal death recorded and only one per cent of neonatal death. There were four sets of twins, two sets of triplets and a quadruplet delivered in the facilities as a result of this initiative."

Dr. Dayo Adeyanju said the initiative commenced about six months ago and was piloted; this initiative has been highly impactful in the pilot local government area and this has informed the need to scale up in phases to other areas.
