Good antenatal care can prevent the major causes of neonatal mortality in Nigeria—neonatal tetanus, malaria, maternal anemia, asphyxia, and premature birth. But only 6 in ten mothers receive antenatal care from a trained medical professional. Nurses and midwives are the most frequently used source of maternal and infant healthcare in Nigeria.

The Maternal and Infant Care Training Workshops for nurses and midwives in both rural and urban areas of Nigeria is focused on improving the quality of health care services provided to pregnant women, new mothers and newborns. The workshops are facilitated by licensed healthcare professionals in maternal/infant care.
