Maternal, child health findings disseminated in The Gambia

Professor Laura Ferguson disseminated baseline evaluation findings for her ongoing project with the World Bank in December.

The project focuses on nutrition and primary health care services for women and children in The Gambia’s poorest regions to help reduce maternal and child mortality and under-nutrition. The findings were distributed at high-level meetings which were well-attended by a range of people across government ministries, United Nations agencies and civil society organizations. The results are generating useful discussion about action moving forward in The Gambia.

During her stay, Professor Ferguson met with the The Gambia Vice President Dr. Aja Isatou Njie-Saidy and Minister of Health Omar Sey to discuss the work and its future.
