Fifteen thousand Pregnant women are to benefit from the Ogun state government free delivery programme tagged “Ibidero” as part of measures put in place to improve the state’s maternal mortality index.

Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker disclosed this in Abeokuta, the state capital, while speaking to newsmen on the new scheme.

Dr. Coker noted that the initiative was a health insurance scheme targeted at vulnerable indigent pregnant women across the 20 local government areas of the state.

She noted that through the programme, the enrolled expectant mothers would have access to free maternal health services at their assigned health centers, which would reduce the risk of complications during or after pregnancy.

The Commissioner added that “Ibidero” was designed to include a conditional cash transfer whereby the pregnant women captured on the programme get a stipend after delivering their babies at their assigned health facility.

She however reiterated the present administration’s committed to providing affordable, qualitative, and accessible healthcare for all.
