Fake Doctors causes huge maternal, infants mortality in Kaduna

Mr Mustapha Jumare, the Chairman Kaduna State Maternal New born and Child Health Accountability Mechanism (KADMAM), stated that fake doctors are contributing to large rates of maternal and infant mortality in the state.

He complained bitterly that there are unqualified health workers and doctors that are endangering lives in many private hospitals in Kaduna State state.

The Chairman of the association made this known during a one-day quarterly Multi Stakeholder’s Forum on Assessment of 255 Primary Health Care Centres and 2019 Health Budget Performance in Kaduna.

Mr Jumare also stated that most of the private hospitals are not up to standard to be regarded as a hospital but are still admitting people and providing services.

“The state government is not even aware of some private hospitals that exists in the state.

“In such kinds of hospitals, you will find unqualified doctors who carries out surgery on patients and this leads to increasing in maternal mortality.

“This is the reason we are calling of the government of Kaduna State to employ more health workers to be deployed to 255 primary Health Care Centres in the state.

Hospitals should be renovated, most especially the Primary Health Centres so that people can have relief while we continue to expose those unqualified hospitals,” he stated.

There is every need to address this problem because it is the ordinary people that are suffering, he added.
