The Bahar Project is operated by BEOC, a wholly owned subsidiary of BEL, under the terms of a Joint Operating Agreement.
Furthermore, this study sought to review the type of EOC services offered (i.e., BEOC or CEOC), the utilization of EOC services, and the differences between private and public facilities.
Facilities were classified into whether they met standards prescribed for basic essential obstetrics care (BEOC) or comprehensive essential obstetric care (CEOC) on the basis of performance of signal functions as specified in the LIN Guidelines (Figure 2) (4).
Of the 258 health facilities studied, a total of 7 facilities (2.5%) met the UN guidelines to be designated as a BEOC facility, and 28 facilities (10.9%) met the standard for a CEOC facility (Table 2).
When looking at EOCs by type, there were 7 BEOC facilities, which converts to approximately three per 500,000 population, which is below the UN recommendation.
The UN Guidelines state that at least 15% of all births in the population should take place in either a BEOC or CEOC facility.
While the state has an acceptable number of combined EOC services (both BEOC and CEOC), when taken separately, there is shortage of BEOC facilities.

Given the unequal distribution of EOC facilities and services in Kwara that is evident in our findings, the establishment of new health facilities, specifically those that provide BEOC services, is needed.
