Assistant Director, Family Planning Services, Dr. Gabriel Ortonga, representing the director, reproductive health division, Dr. Kayode Afolabi, noted that the move to train primary health workers on self-care was to ease the bottlenecks patients experience when trying to access basic healthcare services.

Rivers State Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr. Ndidi Utchay, disclosed that the innovative services fashioned at promoting sexual, reproductive, and maternal health are a bright choice in service delivery with a good return on investments in health care, adding that the state is devoted to being part of self-care intervention.
