The Health Ministry has recorded a decrease in Maternal Mortality rate.
Minister for Health and Medical Services, Jone Usamate says the decrease reflects efforts by all stakeholders from 1990 to 2015.
“The figure that we have shows that these have reduced from 34.7 to 30.9. As a country we also continue to improve. The government once again is committed to continue this improvement.”
Usamate says pregnant mothers should look after themselves in order to have high chance of survival during labour and after delivery.
He adds the Health Ministry is striving to deliver best medical services with the limited resources they have.
