The Newborn Care Course has reached a variety of health workers

On the NCCs at the end of April in Cameroon, altogether we had candidates from 6 of Cameroon’s 10 Regions. Participants came from a variety of work places, some small local health centres, some bigger hospitals. There were nurses, midwives, doctors and a paediatric surgeon taking part. There were English and French speakers. The workshops and small group teaching gave participants the chance to share their experiences, and discuss specific problems that they face at work.  This is important in a health environment where doctors and midwives and nurses do not usually share training experiences.

Midwife, Julia, studies her course manual. Julia did particularly well on the course and is responsible for training other midwives in her health facility in Douala. NICHE left one of the manikins donated by the BMA with her so that she can continue to cascade what she learnt to others.
