Ondo leads the way in mother and baby care

The establishment of Mother and Child Hospital in Akure, the Ondo state capital is revolutionising the delivery of babies in the state. Launched in 2010, the 100-bed hospital is an integral part of the state’s Abiye (Safe Motherhood) project. So far the hospital has treated over 26, 000 patients, delivered 5,879 babies over 900 of them through caesarian section.

The number of mothers who survive child birth has also increased. The Abiye project is the brain child of Olusegun Mimiko, medical doctor and governor of Ondo state.
