 en SHORT REPORT- Utilisation of Antenatal Care in a Nigerian Teaching Hospital
Karl Peltzer and Banji Ajegbomogun


Records of 300 antenatal clinic attendees of a Nigerian teaching hospital were analysed. Results show that many of them obtained care only late in pregnancy and inadequately. Reasons for the delay in seeking antenatal care should be further investigated. (Afr J Reprod Health 2005 2005; 9[3]:159-161)

 fr Utilisation des soins prénatals dans un Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Nigérian
Karl Peltzer and Banji Ajegbomogun


Les dossiers de 300 femmes qui fréquentent la consultation prénatale au sein d'un Centre Hospitaliers Universitaire ont été analysés. Les résultats ont montré que bon nombre d'entre elles ne profitent de soins prénatals que très tard pendant la grossesse et de manière peu adéquate. Il faut étudier davantage les raisons pour lesquelles elles recherchent les soins tard. (Rev Afr Santé Reprod 2005; 9[3]:159-161)
