Preterm babies born in Gaya Niger are dying due the lack of fund to access basic healthcare
Global deaths of newborn babies remain alarmingly high, particularly among the world’s poorest countries, according to a new report published by Unicef. More preemies are dying each year in Sub-Sahara Africa even as child health improves overall. In general, preemies born in richer countries fare far better, but there are differences within countries. Babies born to rich families have a higher chance at survival the those born to poor or rural families
In sub-Saharan Africa countries, pregnant women are much less likely to receive assistance, due to poverty, conflict or weak institutions. Families already faced with poverty have to make hard choice win order to get the needed care for the premature newborn. In addition hospital in rural area are usually not equipped to deal with the healthcare needed save premature babies. Parents have then to travel hours or days to big cities in order to save their newborn.
These factors are causing major pain to mothers and fathers and reducing the survival rate of premature babies born in Sub-Saha Africa, specially in Gaza Niger.
