MoHAP's multidisciplinary plans and initiatives pay special attention to enhance awareness about the safety of mothers and newborns during childbirth through the provision of distinguished and safe care and competent health professionals working in supportive environments, said HE Dr. Hussain Abdul Rahman Al Rand, Assistant Undersecretary for the Public Health Sector.


The ministry also works hand in hand with all partners to adopting comprehensive health and community programs, in order to achieve the Ministry's strategy aimed at providing comprehensive and innovative healthcare to prevent diseases and enhance health care, he added.


E-clinics 
Esmat Al Qassem, Head of the Maternity and Childhood Department, said the ministry has established electronic clinics to develop health services for the Maternity and Childhood Department, in line with the precautionary measures taken to contain Covid-19.


There are also specific programs for maternal health care before pregnancy and follow-up during the fourth month of pregnancy, during and after delivery, added Al Qassem, in addition to educational programs for mothers related to public health, nutrition, health care for children, prevention of diseases and vaccinations.
She indicated that the specialized health services include remote visits to the mother and her infant in the first week, with the ability to attend the hospital or health center according to the medical district if needed.


There are also vaccination visits for all ages, except for the age of two months and in case of new vaccinations, where the child's condition is assessed through the electronic clinic, and the vaccination is provided on the second day through the drive-thru vaccination service.
