On behalf of the Ministry of Health, the Permanent Secretary, Diana Atwine, received a mobile ultrasound machine from Airtel as part of their safe motherhood program.
The machine will be handed over to Bukwo district to enable mothers deliver safely.
“This machine comes at a time when we are improving maternal child health services across the country. We are positive that this innovation will assist medical workers in dealing with the mothers,” Atwine said.
“The portable device is able to monitor the mother and the unborn baby’s health during pregnancy. This is essential in low resource settings,” said Menyo Innocent – Team lead, M-SCAN.
