GOOD HEALTHCARE FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS CAN INCREASE ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
My first cousins both living in Nigeria died during child birth and preventable diseases. One was 42years, a mother of three children all under the age of 10 died of malaria which is a preventable disease. The other 32yrs also a mother of two kids both under the age of six died during childbirth. I believe every citizen especially pregnant women and children should be given free access to medical care by their government. People in poor and developing countries tend to have no access or little to health care services which puts more mothers and children at risk. NGOs around the world are contributing so much to the health of women and children around the world. There are still the hard to reach places because of lack of access to good roads and electricity. also lack of proper education,lack of health teachers also pose a risk. We as individuals need to work with local authorities in our communities to create awareness of the dangers and health issues which if left untreated could lead to death.
