Mimiko, according to a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, John Paul Akinduro, will be speaking on “Sustainable Practice to Reduce Maternal Mortality in Nigeria: My Experience” and is expected to focus on result-based evidence of the highly successful Abiye Safe Motherhood programme which he pioneered while in the saddle as governor of Ondo State.
Abiye, the home-grown novel health interventionist programme, successfully reduced infant and maternal mortality rate in Ondo state by over 70 percent and was identified by the World Bank as a potent method for tackling infant and martenal mortality in Africa.
The Vice Chancellor of UNILORIN, Prof. Sulyman Age Abdulkareem, will chair the event.
