Donors, Government Must Address Market Failures to Solve Problem

Global health organization PATH and local NGO Association for Reproductive & Family Health (ARFH) joined together on September 13, 2016 in Abuja to highlight the fact that many Nigerian women lack access to the lifesaving medicines that can prevent the two most deadly complications of pregnancy and childbirth – post-partum hemorrhage and eclampsia. A new paper by PATH, Stronger markets, increased access to maternal health supplies,” details how inconsistent availability and poor-quality supplies of oxytocin, misoprostol, and magnesium sulfate in the country threaten women’s lives, and what can be done to solve the problem.
