Limulunga Maternal and Child Health Coordinator Nella Mwala says factors which contribute to maternal death should be addressed promptly.
Speaking at the first ever quarter maternal death review meeting for Limulunga district, Ms Mwale said the district recorded 3 maternal deaths in the first quarter of this year.
She noted that it was vital for every woman to delivery safely stating that any gaps in service delivery contributing to women dying whilst giving life should be curtailed to promote safe motherhood.
The Coordinator said it was pleasing that government noted the need for nurses to go through induction for the promotion of safe motherhood so that they are equipped with midwifery skills.
And chairing the meeting, District Administrative Officer Mubiana Ngenda sounded the need for all stakeholders to work in collaboration with the District Health Office to facilitate safe delivery.
Mr Ngenga appealed to residents of Limulunga to work amicably with medical personals to prevent complications which would arise in child labour.
Meanwhile, Limulunga District Health Director Dr Douglas Singini urged the committee to put forward recommendations which could aid the elimination of maternal death by improving service delivery.
He also disclosed that the district had received a number of medical staff in the last recruitment adding that the development would support the goal to save lives in child birth in the outskirts of Limulunga district.
The maternal death review committee was a requirement from the World Health Organisation (WHO) to promote competence and inform policy makers on any existing gap in service delivery.
