10 women died due to labour complications in Afgoye district
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:38:45 AM »
At least 10 women have died in the district of Afgooye in the region of the Lower Shabelle of Somalia due to labour complications.

Three of them were internally displaced persons running away from heavy clashes between insurgents and Somali government forces in the capital Mogadishu.

The report said the district in the north of Mogadishu lacks enough healthcare centers particularly those specialized in women health problems.

The expectant mothers usually die after experiencing a long period of labour pain.

Sources from the district hospital confirmed that three out of seven died at the hospital after the hospital had run out of tetanus medication.
