NICHE’s first trip to Liberia!

Alistair and Julia are off to Liberia at the crack of dawn tomorrow to facilitate 2 Newborn Care Courses in CH Rennie hospital alongside a local neonatal nurse practitioner and some midwifery interns. My understanding is that an intern is a trained midwife who is then given extended roles which would overlap with those of an obstetrician in well resourced countries like the UK. But we’ll find out more when we’re there and have met the local faculty.

This trip is in collaboration with the charity, Maternal and Child Health Advocacy International ( who originally designed the Newborn Care Course and under whose umbrella we taught the course in Cameroon until 2016.
