Community Health Workers Helping To Improve Maternal Care In Nigeria

NPR: New Mothers Get A New Kind Of Care In Rural Nigeria

But in some places, community health workers are an important part of the solution. … And they’ve become a boon in Nigeria, which has one of the world’s highest rates of maternal death — 576 per 100,000 live births in 2013…” (Sohn, 5/26).
