The Bono Regional Health Directorate last Thursday launched a campaign to stop the rise in maternal mortality in the region. Statistics available indicate that whereas the region recorded 22 maternal deaths in 2019, the figure increased to 26 in 2020.

In 2021, the figure jumped further to 28, while 15 maternal deaths have already been recorded this year.  It is as a result of this that the regional health directorate, in
collaboration with the Family Health Division and the Ghana Health Service
(GHS), launched the campaign against maternal mortality on the theme:
"Stop Preventable Maternal Deaths and Disabilities".
