‘We cannot talk about child health without naming maternal health’.

Paul Welaga, PhD fellow from Navrongo Health Research Centre, Ghana calls for more resources and systems to support maternal and child health. In his answers to Global Health Minders' five questions about Global Health, Paul Welaga names child health, malaria and non-communicable diseases as biggest global health issues. As the way of living is changing in most parts of the world, the non-communicable diseases are spreading. According to Paul Welaga, child health should have the highest priority - and as one cannot talk about child health without including mothers, maternal health should also be a priority.
