Innovation Description

Due to the violence of Boko Haram in northern Nigeria, over 2 million people, namely women and children have fled their homes. There is a lack of maternal healthcare resources due to insecurity, leaving mothers without any healthcare. For survivors of sexual violence, pregnancy can be a traumatizing experience without support structures of family and community. Unaddressed trauma can lead to delivery complications and as a result an increased risk of maternal mortality.
