The paper is on Health Challenges in the Present Democratic Era in Nigeria: The Place of Technology. This position paper highlights the situation concerning maternal and child health, where the poor states of women and children are alarming due to poor facilities for neonatal intensive care, women dying in childbirth as a result of bleeding, as well as small pelvic to allow free passage of children distorted by malnutrition. Others are lack of access to good health care, poor nutrition due to poverty, wars/violence, female general mutilation and abortion. On the place of technology regarding these challenges, it is known that diversifying the agricultural sector will boost the supply of the needed food nutrients by individuals in the society. In medical sciences there is skeptism of new technology causing clinicians to be more rigorous about accepting the latest inversions which have helped in reducing morbidity and mortality from medical errors. As a result of war, many children have lost their parents, many are prey to human trafficking, and some are made homeless. Abortion, has damaged the reproductive organs of many women and had made some unproductive. Based on these and many others, it was recommended among others that, since curative health care alone has not promoted the health of Nigerians to a level expected, it is worthwhile for preventive health care to be practiced alongside with the curative.
