This enables the pregnant women know more about their pregnancy development and plan as well to go and receive the necessary medical care in case their is a problem.
- According to UNICEF, more than 50 percent of women in Uganda don’t complete the 4 recommended antenatal visits.
- Most women in Uganda have registered late antenatal care (ANC) attendance, averagely at 5.5 months of pregnancy.
- Women in rural areas of Uganda are two times less likely to attend ANC than the urban women.
