Observer: Allegedly Maternal deaths rose to 40% in Limpopo province: MEC Ramathuba
This is the news that we woke up to this morning. We have seen the reports on the polokwane newspapers called Observer. This kind of a newspaper in this town it is a leading one, and very reputable. We read a report that MEC of health department Poppy Ramathuba has reported that the death rate for children stillborn or pregnant women is increasing in the province.
It was highlighted that this is due to negligence in government hospitals. This cannot just be the negligence that can be pointed to healthy workers. It is the negligence that can be pointed to our political failures, our governing system and the economic condition that we find ourselves in.
A lot of public hospitals now are lacking equipment. It was not like that before, it is just that those equipments that were there, they are not maintained, there is no service to certain equipment that are supposed to help. There is also no close monitoring of the food that should be given to this year kind of people that are in such condition. A lot of times you realise that there too much neglegence from the health workers not because they want to, but because they don’t have what is it necessary to do their work effectively. Resources are limited.
