Our attention has been drawn to various articles, public outcries and concerns about the availability of Mama Kits (Safe Delivery Kits), in Government Health Facilities.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) together with National Medical Stores (NMS) wishes to inform the Public as follows:-

In pursuance of this commitment, government provides funds, every financial year, to procure MAMA Kits (Safe Delivery Kits) to be provided FREE to all mothers who deliver in Government Health Facilities. No mother should pay for this MAMA Kit in a Government Health Facility.
