Edo State Local Government Service Commission Promises Increased Collaboration With WHARC.

Edo State Local Government Service Commission (LGSC), has acknowledged the far-reaching contributions of the Women’s Health and Action Research Centre (WHARC), to the promotion of safe motherhood in Nigeria.

The Chairman of the Commission, Dr. Simon Imuekemhe, made this known when he received a team of officials from WHARC at the Local Government Service Commission on an advocacy visit. The Visit was to solicit for the support of the Commission to strengthen the utilization of Primary Health Care services in Etsako East and Esan South East Local Government areas of the State with the aim of increasing access to skilled pregnancy care in these locations.

Dr Imuekemhe promised that the Commission would provide additional healthcare service providers in the benefiting Primary Health Care centres and pledged for WHARC, which he described as worthy partners in the healthcare delivery system of the Sate.

Earlier, the Executive Director of WHARC and leader of the advocacy team, Dr. Wilson Imongan explained that  WHARC’s intervention research project is aimed at “increasing women’s access to skilled pregnancy care to reduce maternal and perinatal mortality in rural Edo” and that the project is in collaboration with University of Ottawa, Canada  with funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Canada.

Dr. Imongan said the project was at its implementation stage where collaboration with policy makers is paramount. He then requested for the deployment of  midwives/nurses to the Primary Health Care centres to improve the quality of maternal healthcare service delivery at the grassroots and thus increasing women’s access to skilled pregnancy care to reduce maternal and perinatal mortality.
