Ulla Mueller, the Country Representative of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) in Nigeria has
expressed determination towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) where every pregnancy will be wanted, with zero Maternal Mortality (MM).
She made the UN body’s position known at the “Strategic Stakeholders Reflection” meeting on Korea International Cooperation
Agency (KOICA)-Funded project held in Abuja.
The KOICA-funded project followed an agreement between UNFPA Nigeria and
the Korean agency to implement a five-year (2018 – 2021) plan toward fostering resilience and provision of basic medical services for women
and girls in Borno.
The project is to build resilient communities through the restoration of access to basic medical and social services in conflict-affected communities.
The specific objectives of the project are to increase access to comprehensive maternal and child care, increase access to fistula care and improve capacity
for result-based data management system.
