About the webinar

Transaid has been implementing emergency transport schemes in Nigeria for over 10 years, most recently in Adamawa and Nasarawa States. The overarching objective of the schemes is to overcome the transport challenges that women in rural areas experience in accessing maternal health services through the provision of safe, affordable and sustainable transport solutions.

Transaid has previously played a part in implementing a number of emergency transport components in programmes such as PRRINN-MNCH (DFID & NORAD), Maternal Health Learning Project in Gombe State (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), Linking Pregnant Women to Maternal Health Services (Comic Relief UK) and most recently the Nasarawa State Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) (Puma Energy Foundation).

This webinar will focus on our ETS experiences and the potential this intervention has to positively impact maternal health outcomes on a wide scale. It is an opportunity to hear from different organisations who have implemented the approach in different locations and to different scales and hear about challenges and lessons learnt. We will also be answering any questions you may have in a Q&A session at the end.
