Centre Sets Up Maternity Data Bank At Irrua, Edo.

The Women's Health and Action Research Centre (WHARC) has collaborated with Impact University of Aberdeen-United Kingdom to set up a maternity data bank at Irrua Specialist Hospital in Edo State.

Its effort to promote the health and well being of women and adolescents in Africa in the area of sexual and reproductive health through systematic research and documentation has led to the urgent need to improve maternal, neonatal and child health outcomes in Nigeria.

Deputy Executive Director of the organisation, Dr. Wilson Imongan, said the data bank would further enhance evidence based research in the identification of possible and preventable causes of maternal mortality in Nigeria and in Africa at large.
