Mamaville Pregnancy Partners is a special purpose medical practice that was designed by some experts aimed at improving maternal health for Nigerians. It is about one year in operation.
Like other maternal inclined health service companies, including Partum Secrets and Mamalette NG, a big challenge remains access to funding at initial stages of operation.
Nigeria has one of the worst maternal indices in the world and these companies are making a difference by innovating new solutions to counter the negative backlogs of poor service in the country.
Unlike other sectors like technology, agriculture, access to funding is limited to health solution innovators and providers.
Dr Debo Odulana announced via a tweet that the Mamaville Pregnancy Partners have secured a grant of N5million from the Africa Capital Alliance Foundation.
Indeed, this is a big feat for a company established about a year ago. It must mean that there is light at the end of the tunnel for the team, for breaking a ceiling that many have tried but failed.
If this grant translates to impacting and improving maternal health in Nigeria would become clear soon.
We would definitely be keeping a close watch on Mamaville Pregnancy Partners in the coming months and years.
