Toyin Saraki

Ahead of the Inaugural Global Midwifery Conference, Her Excellency Mrs Toyin Saraki, the Founder-Director of the Wellbeing Foundation Africa, and ICM Global Goodwill Ambassador, outlines the importance of investing in midwifery.

HE Toyin Saraki expressed the following points:

  • The value of midwives in Nigeria is being shown in the unlikeliest of places – camps for internally displaced people (IDP) uprooted by Boko Haram militants.
  • Around one in five babies are dying during childbirth in northeast Nigeria, where the Islamist group has waged a six-year insurgency, yet the survival rate of pregnancies delivered in IDP camps in the region is almost 100 percent
  • At this conference, the midwives will not only learn how to save a mother and child’s life, but also how to detect women at risk of domestic violence and female genital mutilation (FGM)
  • While Nigeria has started training midwives in life-saving emergency obstetric care in recent years, it still lacks enough midwives or an even distribution across the nation
  • Midwives will be the army to change dire health outcomes, if we invest in them and provide them with skills
  • Nigerian midwives need to be able to stand on an equal footing with midwives from around the world
