Webinar Series: Advancing Neonatal Nursing Education in LMIC in Africa
Posted: June 24, 2020
Our most recent webinar Reducing Preventable Neonatal Deaths in Northern Ghana was on August 1, 2022
In celebration of 2020 – Year of the Nurse and Midwife, Project HOPE highlights the collective work being advanced within partnerships in promoting the development of Neonatal Nursing capacity in low resource settings in Africa with a webinar, Advancing Neonatal Nursing Education in LMIC in Africa: the Case for Strengthening Neonatal Nursing Capacity and Emerging Experiences.
The two-session webinar (about 90 minutes each) was designed for an audience of relevant country governments, other NGOs working in newborn health issues, nurses and midwives interested in this work or who could benefit from such initiatives.
The first session, held on June 23, 2020, provided an overview of neonatal nursing education in sub-Saharan Africa, focusing on needs and approaches.
The second session, held on June 30, 2020, brought together implementation perspectives from countries such as Rwanda, Malawi, and Sierra Leone, with sharing of lessons learned.
