Locals call for improvement to the maternal health care system

Local organizers rallied Sunday to bring awareness to the countryâ??s high infant mortality rate.

The organization claims the country spends the most on maternity care, but still has one of the highest infant mortality rates among other developed countries. The rally at Ottawa Park was held in conjunction with other 150 cities holding the same rally around the country. Its goal wants attention to the â??dire stateâ?? of the maternal health care system.
