COMOROS: Involving Men in Maternal Health

Alwatwan on 13 June reported that health authorities in Ngazidja opted to fully involve husbands in the campaign to reduce maternal and infant mortality. Dubbed the "model husbands" for their commitment to the protection and empowerment of their wives, they were trained from 11 to 13 June 2013 in the center of CASM (Moroni-Mtsangani) with technical and financial support from UNFPA. In his opening message to the workshop, the UNFPA Representative requested the support of the husbands present in talking to other husbands who refuse to this day to let their wives make prenatal visits, deliveries in a hospital environment and postnatal visits. ''This is an action that falls within the dynamics of CARMMA, launched 16 May 2013 by the Head of State,'' said the representative of the government.
