Midwives@Ethiopia November 2015 Visit

by / Thursday, 17 March 2016 / Published in General News

Midwives@Ethiopia had a fantastic 2 week visit to Ethiopia in November 2015. Our time was spent in Dilla, Yirgacheffe and Hawassa. Our focus included (in brief!) –

  1. Providing training, alongside our partners, to Health Extension workers in Dilla
  2. Deliver an Education Conference to midwifery lecturers in Hawassa College of Human and Health Sciences then,
    together, provide a training programme for around 50 government-appointed practising midwives across Southern Ethiopia
  3. Incorporated into our time were important aspects of the charity’s work including focus groups and feedback sessions to support ongoing monitoring and evaluation around Dilla and Yirgacheffe

Included are just a few pictures to give you an idea of how our time was spent….
