Ministry of Health Kenya

Abstract

Maternal and child health has remained a high priority for the Government at large and for the Ministry of Health (MoH) in particular. A significant determinant of maternal health is attendance of Antenatal Care (ANC) and skilled birth attendance. Births assisted by skilled providers have averaged at 44 percent in the past few years according to Ministry of Health reports. The benefits of utilizing the community trained birth attendants cannot be gain said. The increase in the use of skilled birth attendants has the potential to significantly reduce maternal and infant deaths which are key Millennium Development Goal (MDGs) deliverables.
