Channels of Hope for Maternal Newborn Child Health
Friday, November 1, 2019
Faith leaders and communities often lack necessary mindsets, skills and information to engage in a helpful way on health issues. Rather, they often can be the drivers of wrong information, creating barriers that prohibit people from visiting clinics, receiving vaccinations, or using birth spacing methods. Their influence is essential to address early marriage, harmful traditional practices, treating women and girls equitably, encouraging the involvement of men in maternal newborn child health (MNCH) or addressing stigma.
