Duration: 3:21

Production Year: 2017

Synopsis

Senegal is yet to attain quality health-care for all it’s people. Every year, 2000 mothers die from complications during or after childbirth in Dakar. 27,000 children, under the age of 5 die every year, due to a lack of medical care.

The Population Reference Bureau in collaboration with Cradre des Religieux Pour la sante et le Development (CRSD), la Direction de la Sante de la Reproduction et de la Survie de l’Enfant (DSRSE) funded by USAID, sought to speak with religious and community leaders in Dakar on the essence of planned parenthood.

The fulfilling engagement drew in religious and cultural perspectives that further encouraged the need for healthy maternal care and family planning. As a collective society driven by culture and religion, Senegalese strive to live in harmony with one another to promote harmony, tolerance and peace in the country.
