Mr. Lusambo says following the mitigating measures such proper ways of conceiving and through improved antenatal care bookings at the health posts by the ministry of health and its cooperating partners, maternal mortality rate in the country has reduced tremendously.

The minister said this in a speech read on his behalf by the Lusaka District Commissioner Captain Davison Mulenga during the 7th edition of Maternal Death Surveillance and Response (MDSR) meeting held at Golden Peacock hotel today.

Mr. Lusambo explained that through the Safe Motherhood Action groups (SMAGS) , the ministry of health is playing a vital role in creating awareness on safe pregnancies and anti-natal care to expectant mothers in the country.

The SMAGS are also arranging for community meetings for sensitization and awareness of danger signs in newborns and pregnant women, he said.

He further noted that the same groups are helping expectant mothers to seek for proper antenatal care as delayed treatment might led to maternal death.

  1. Don’t praise PF, praise KK for allowing you Lusambo to be born. UNIP cared for mothers, with mobile Under5 clinics.

    • Problem in Zambia is that the people running the country think they are doing a favour to Zambians. Just look at this statement by Lusambo” ati govt intervention HELP reduce maternal deaths.” Why should it be government helping when it is the duty of the government to provide good services. In this statement Mr Lusambo it may imply that GRZ only does it to help otherwise it is not Grz duty to do so.

  4. Has Lusambo become a medical doctor or a researcher in medical issues. Let Dr Chilu fya or Dr Kaseba discuss these issues. Education is important not just blabla. Lusambo get a break. This is is far beyond your capacity.
