Sad news

Hildegarde (left) was a paediatrician and one of NICHE’s NCC instructors in Cameroon

We were deeply saddened this week to learn of the sudden death of a young paediatric colleague in Yaoundé, Cameroon. Hildegarde was won of the first Neonatal Course instructors to be trained by NICHE and was one of the team who recently travelled to the far north of the country to teach the first 2 Neonatal Care Courses to health professionals there. She was an enthusiastic trainer and passionate about improving the care of newborn babies in her country.

Our deepest condolences to her family and friends as they prepare to attend her funeral tomorrow. She will be sorely missed.
