Nigeria's health situation makes it a major factor in the achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 globally. With approximately 2.5% of the worlds population, Nigeria has over 10% of all under five and maternal deaths, more than 1 million newborn, infant and child deaths and more than 50,000 maternal deaths every year. Nigeria suffers from one of the worst maternal mortality rates in the world, 6 women die every hour in Nigeria from birth related complications. Nigeria as a whole is unlikely to achieve MDG 5 'Improve Maternal Health' by 2015. The situation in the Northern states of Nigeria is significantly worse than the national average.
