Savannakhet urged to upgrade healthcare for expectant mothers

Local officials have been encouraged to improve quality and increase access to maternal health services in target districts of Savannakhet province in line with national policy.
This was the message from Minister of Health Associate Prof. Dr Bounkong Syhavong at a ceremony last week to hand over ambulances to the target districts.
He said the new vehicles would help reduce maternal mortality. In the past, a lack of ambulances had severely affected the safety and quality of care given to mothers and newborns.
