The Departmental Health Institute launched the Acceleration Plan for the Reduction of Maternal Mortality – Paremm, which seeks to prevent deaths in pregnant women throughout the department of Nariño. In 2023, this problem claimed the lives of 11 women and so far this year, one woman died from these causes in the municipality of Tumaco.
This initiative aims to unite efforts between all actors in the health sector, to improve care services, strengthen care networks and governance, in addition to enhancing information and communication strategies that guarantee safe and healthy motherhood. This was indicated by the director of the Departmental Health Institute, Ana Belén Arteaga.
With Paremm, it is proposed to achieve a goal of zero direct and preventable deaths, attacking each of its causes from all fronts, especially in the coastal area of ​​Nariño. Studies carried out by the Departmental Health Institute indicate that between 2016 and 2023, 1,278 cases of maternal morbidity were recorded. Given these figures, Paremm proposes to reinforce prevention and timely care to save more women in Nariño. This plan seeks to guarantee supplies and medications for obstetric emergencies, planning methods and contraception; training and monitoring and humanized delivery.
At the launch of Paremm, mayors, managers of State Social Enterprises, local health directors and other actors signed their commitment to a territory without maternal deaths.
