Family Health Advocates in Nigeria Initiative (FHANI) urged Kaduna State Government to commence distribution of the procured year 2020 child spacing consumables for immediate use by women and families in need.
The Secretary of FHANI Iliya Kure stated this in a statement made available to media in kaduna yesterday.
The statement stated that
continuous delay in the distribution of the consumables will not only affect the child spacing programme in the state, but will also continue to negatively affect families in dire need of the services.
Child spacing according to FHANI has scientifically been proven to reduce maternal deaths by 40%. It can significantly reduce maternal deaths in the state.
