The Senate, yesterday, raised the alarm that Nigeria as a country loses about 2,300 under-five-year-olds and 145 women of childbearing age every day.

As part of moves to end the problem, the Senate mandated its Committees on Women Affairs and Health to work with the Federal Ministries of Women Affairs and Health to find ways of curbing maternal, newborn and infant mortality in the country and report back to it.
