Antenatal Care

Antenatal care (ANC) is one of the core interventions for improving maternal outcomes. ANC services enable early identification of pregnancy related risks and complications; and ensure access of services including health education, vaccines, diagnostic tests and treatments. It also helps to establish good relationship between pregnant women and service providers. Moreover, a pregnant woman visiting health facilities for ANC would get advice and support, and will be more informed about health needs and self-care, and consequently leaded to an increased utilization of emergency care services.
