The SSJDA Seminar [March 22, 2022] "Assessing the maternal and child health care in Nigeria aftermath of the 2012 flood″
- Date & Time

- Assessing the maternal and child health care in Nigeria aftermath of the 2012 flood

- This study examines the impacts of the 2012's flood on maternal and child health care in Nigeria. Utilizing repeated cross-sectional Nigeria's Demographic Health Survey (DRS) data in 2008, 2013, 2018 with its cluster GPS data, the approximation distance to rivers and elevation were used to calculate the vulnerability of each cluster over the worst flood in 40 years. The results show that the probability of getting prenatal health checks, having some birth assistance, delivering at proper health facilities, and having tetanus vaccination is lower among women living in the highly vulnerable zone. Whereas probabilities of a child getting a postnatal check within two months of birth, getting vaccinations, getting breastfeeding are insignificantly different between those born in the highly vulnerable zone or not. These findings highlight the negligence of maternal health care in the aftermath of natural disasters. It raises the need to provide adequate maternal health care among this vulnerable group.
