She further said the ministry has also been working to increase the number of extension workers, midwives and other health professions to narrowing the ratio between mothers delivering at health institutions and professionals.

The ministry has distributed new ambulances to health institution to make the campaign successful, it was pointed out.

Despite the positive results achieved in the sub-sector, the state minister noted that the public need to improve the culture of blood donation to decrease maternal death caused by over bleeding during delivery.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is
    totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
