An international non-governmental organisation, Evidence for Action (E4A) mamaYe, has called on the Taraba State government to improve maternal newborn and child healthcare (MNCH) delivery in the state.
National coordinator of the organisation, Dr Aminu Garba Magashi, made the call yesterday in Jalingo during a two-day capacity training for members of the Taraba State Accountability Mechanism on MNCH (TaSAMM).
He explained that E4A is a United Kingdom funded programme which aims at improving maternal and newborn survival in six sub-Saharan countries namely, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Sierra Leone and Tanzania.
In Nigeria, the programme is being implemented in five states - Ondo, Bauchi, Taraba, Kano and Sokoto.
"E4A acts as a catalyst for action, using evidence strategically to generate political commitment, strengthen accountability and improve planning and decision making at sub-national and national levels. E4A also works to strengthen international and regional accountability," he said.
