130 births with unsupervised deliveries every month

Quoting the Island Sun newspaper � 11 June 2019

�One �hundred and thirty (130) births occur each month in the country reportedly attended to by unskilled health workers.

�This is according to the 2018 Health Core Indicator report from the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS).

��The report indicates that in monitoring access to care and predicting maternal and infant health outcomes, nine percent of births are not attended to by skilled health workers.

�These skilled health workers are doctors, nurses, nurse aid or midwife.

�This means, that on average, 130 births take place each month without suitable health worker supervision and care.

�The report stated that 27 percent of all births occurring in Guadalcanal are done without adequate health worker supervision and 100 percent in Renbel �province.�
