Nigeria has highest maternal mortality rate globally – MRHRC 

The Maternal and Reproductive Health Research Collective (MRHRC) has expressed deep concern about the high maternal mortality rate in Nigeria, which registered approximately 62,000 deaths annually indicating that more women in Nigeria die from pregnancy-related complications than in any other country globally. 


The Founder of MRHRC, Prof Abosede Afolabi, has therefore revealed plans to launch a month-long campaign starting in Lagos called the ‘#WeMenForHer Movement.’


Nairametrics learns that the initiative aims to raise awareness and seek solutions to Nigeria’s growing maternal health crisis.
