AMDF Holds 2017 Media Conference In Curbing Maternal Death In Kaduna

By Lola Seriki- Idahosa, Kaduna NorthWest, Nigeria.

Africa Media Development Foundation (AMDF) will on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017, hold its second annual Media Conference tagged “MediaAfrica” in Kaduna, Northwest, Nigeria.

The conference is aimed at drawing the attention of Media practitioners to deeply understand their role in reducing maternal death rate, especially in northern Nigeria.

At a pre-event briefing, Coordinator of the Organisation, Sekyen Dadik, said, the AMDF as an organization that promotes development and investigative journalism, believes that no development project can effectively achieve its desired goals, without the involvement of the media.

It is against this background, the organisation said, it came up with the idea of the Media Conference tagged ‘MediaAfrica’, a platform for national discourse, to bring to the fore development issues affecting Nigeria and Africa at large, and the place of media in addressing such.

“With the ever increasing focus of the global community on issues of maternal and child health amongst other sustainable development goals, the media, as well as other development stakeholders must rise to the challenge and effectively contribute in curbing the increasing menace of maternal, neonatal and child mortality, especially in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

“MediaAfrica 2017 with the theme “MNCH in Nigeria: Progress, Opportunities, and challenges: The role of the Media in Curbing Maternal Death”, is meant to draw the attention of media practitioners to deeply understand their role in reducing maternal death rate, especially in northern Nigeria, as well as help partners and government on media engagement strategies for effective result.

“Participants are drawn from the Media, Government, Development Partners, Non Governmental Organizations, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

“The Conference is scheduled to hold as follows:

Date: Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Time: 9.00am

“Venue: I-Care Conference Hall, 6 Suleiman Crescent off Alkali Road, Kaduna North West Nigeria.

  4. You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely large for me. I am taking a look ahead in your next post, I’ll try to get the hold of it!

  5. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  6. Thanks for any other fantastic post. Where else may just anybody get that kind of info in such a perfect manner of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am on the look for such information.
