Ngoma Ask GOVT To Hire Helicopters As Ambulances Airlift women With Maternal Complications

Date:

Presidential Advisor on Safe Motherhood Dorothy Ngoma has proposed that government should consider investing in the acquisition of helicopters that will be used as ambulances to airlift women with maternal health complications from hard to reach areas to major health referrals as a way to do away with preventable maternal related deaths.

Ngoma disclosed this during her interaction with the media in Blantyre on Thursday.

“the tax payers money which is mercilessly looted, could otherwise be used to serve these mothers and unborn children,” Ngoma made an observation.

The program coordinator for Helping Babies Breath at Blantyre district health office  Chikondi Macheso has disclosed that in 2019-2020, about 439 for every 100 000 deaths, were maternal related deaths, a figure set to rise in this year.
