Muslim Leaders Advocacy Group For Maternal Child Health In Nigeria

In Nigeria, One in five children die before their fifth birthday. Over 40% of children miss out on school and work to earn a living. Health facilities are in bad shape and in need of repair, lacking basic equipments and drugs. In some districts in Northern Nigeria, less than 1% of children are fully immunised even though most child deaths are vaccine preventable.
