Donations of blood are critical to saving the lives of those in need.

The Association of Professional Women Engineers of Nigeria (APWEN) is urging Nigerians to donate blood to save the lives of women who die from uncontrolled bleeding every year. According to the World Health Organization, about 100,000 women die from this preventable cause each year. APWEN is working to raise awareness about the importance of blood Donation and to encourage more Nigerians to donate blood to save the lives of women who are at risk of dying from uncontrolled bleeding.

Maternal mortality is a significant problem in many parts of the world, and one of the major contributing factors is the lack of access to safe and adequate blood supplies. One of the most effective ways to reduce maternal mortality is to ensure that all women who need blood have access to it. Blood transfusions are a life-saving intervention for many pregnant women, and access to safe and adequate supplies of blood is essential for reducing maternal mortality. In many parts of the world, however, blood supplies are often inadequate or unsafe. This is often due to a lack of Investment in the blood transfusion Infrastructure, as well as poor Regulation and oversight of blood banks.

For every 100,000 babies born alive in Nigeria, over 814 women die.

Despite significant progress made in reducing maternal mortality rates globally, Nigeria still has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality in the world. Uncontrolled bleeding is a leading cause of death among pregnant women, and donated blood can be a lifesaving resource for women experiencing this complication. In Nigeria, the maternal mortality rate is unacceptably high, with an estimated 814 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2021. That means that for every 100,000 babies born alive in Nigeria, over 814 women die from pregnancy-related causes. Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of maternal mortality in Nigeria, accounting for an estimated 24% of all maternal deaths. Donated blood can be a lifesaving resource for women experiencing these complications.

Blood donation is a process in which a person donates blood to a blood bank or hospital. The blood is then used to help people who need it, such as those who have been injured or who have an illness. Blood donation is a safe and easy way to help people in need, and it can be a very rewarding experience. Donating blood can make a big difference in the lives of others. It is important to note that blood donation is a safe and easy process that poses no risk to the donor.

The purpose of the discussion was to create awareness and offer solutions.

There are three primary types of blood donors: commercial, family replacement, and voluntary. Of these, the World Health Organization (WHO) argues that voluntary donors who give blood out of goodwill are the best and safest option. The reasoning behind this is that such donors are not motivated by compensation, and are thus less likely to falsify information or engage in other risky behaviors.

At the 8th annual celebration for the association’s founding President, Joana Maduka, a lecture was given on the importance of the association’s work, with the focus of this years event being, “Reduction of Maternal Mortality Through Provision of Adequate and Safe Blood”. There are a number of different women’s health issues that can be addressed. These include pregnancy, miscarriages, abortions, and other related conditions. The purpose of the discussion was to create awareness and offer solutions to these problems. One of the key solutions that was proposed was better access to healthcare. This includes both primary care and specialist care. Additionally, it was suggested that there needs to be more Education on women’s health issues.

Reproductive health is a critical issue for women’s health.

In recent years, there has been an increased focus on women’s health issues. This is due in part to the fact that more women are now working and therefore have less time to take care of themselves. Additionally, there is a greater understanding of the importance of women’s health in society. There are a number of different issues that can be addressed, including reproductive, Mental Health, and chronic diseases. Reproductive health is a critical issue for Women in Nigeria.
