The kits which are extremely affordable, contain best brands and are developed based on Brown Button’s core beliefs that:
·         The location of a woman at childbirth should never be a predominant factor in determining whether she lives or dies
·         No woman or child should die at childbirth
Brown Button Foundation, a 2013 United Nations’ World Summit Youth Award shortlist as well as a 2011 Echoing Green Award Semi finalist, has been working in the field of Maternal and Child Health since 2011 with a focus on providing simple life saving solutions that can easily be owned and sustained by the populace themselves. They train traditional and skilled birth attendants and continue to work with individuals, organisations and government at different levels to promote maternal and child health.

 In 2012, Brown Button Foundation visited Zamfara State and met a newborn who had been infected with tetanus as a result of a rusted razor blade used to cut his umbilical cord. Since 2011, the organisation has realised that a need exist for not only skilled health care workers and facilities but also life saving supplies at the most affordable cost. With these kits, they believe that the dream of a clean, healthy and safe birth place minimizing the risk of infection can come true.

While they have some distributors covering specific locations for the sales of the kits, they are open to getting many more distributors across Nigeria to help them connect the woman in need to the life saving supplies she needs.

You can pick up the kits by contacting any of our current distributors by following this link http://goo.gl/9NeNk8

Linda,this is a gud step in d rite direction!like all other drugs it will end up getting paid for!i would share my experience here!in my search for the fruit of the womb after 3 years of marriage led me to a massage house,something very popular in the southern part of NIgeria!as educated and exposed as I was then but wearing the shoe and knowing where it hurts the most I went with an old friend!in my shock horror there were 2 ladies who had their babies there!one of them lost her baby,the baby was stillborn and as a result she had to b assisted to deliver the baby!in a place like this there was no water!infact a very pitiful memory to share!this old woman owned this place with her equally very old mother!in the days of our grandparents babies were delivered at home,but it wasn't an option!in that delivery home the only I found remotely close to modern day were her gloves!I pray that the people in charge of these life saving kits deliver them to the right people for FREE.
God bless Nigeria.

na govt suppose dey give dis tin free na

concerned med student said...

I just pray ds kit is not too expensive as it wd b a rip off if it were, bcos u wd get most of its components @ d nearby pharmacies;sterile as well,besides its contents r not enough for a normal delivery e.g d absorbent towels n d sterile gloves.I knw ds cos I'm a final year medical student.I'd advise dt u get ur delivery shopping list well before ur due date of delivery to avoid running ard @ d dying minute.All d best

Anonymous said...

the
truth is dat most babies delivered in naija are nt in hospitals...most
are in homes of midvives and personal homes....so training the
traditional birth attendants and midvives nt the doctors is key along
wit distribution of the kits cos most of dem no sabi english sef

Mystique Makeovers said...

Lol...nice development.

dr. Adamu said...

U get dem for mind before.. I trained in d south & practice in gusau.. And must say this is a super innovation, there is a gap btw the ideal and reality here and i must say the product fills dat gap. Innovations like this need to adopted by northern governments.

This delivery pack is supposed to be free from govt, am due this month and even in a govt hospital I have to pay 8k for it....this is naija for you
