APC States to review maternity leave to 6 months

APC controlled states in the nineteen states are developing a common policy initiative on maternal and child nutrition promotion which will approve six months maternity leave for nursing mothers.

This was part of the resolutions during a virtual meeting of the Progressives Governors’ Forum which followed a series of other sessions with the Commissioners of Health, Agriculture and Education where a framework was discussed.

A statement said the meeting reviewed the current status of child and maternal nutrition.

The meeting agreed that APC controlled states commit themselves to promoting essential nutrient fortified foods and supplements for children under the ages of 5 and nursing mothers, the statement said.
