Training Of Midwives To Resume 

By Leocadia Bongben

The training of midwives, that had been suspended for about five years, will resume during the 2011/2012 academic year.

This was the outcome of the meeting of Directors of Nursing Schools that held at the Yaounde Conference Centre on April 5. The Minister of Public Health, Andre Mama Fouda, underscored the importance of the meeting; to evaluate the work done before the end of the year and organise the next academic year.

The meeting, therefore, provided an opportunity for the directors to validate the training programme for midwives and introduce a cycle of medical imagery for medical personnel.
The Vice Director of the Catholic School for Health Sciences Shisong, Donatus Ndiyun, said removing midwifery from the training of health personnel was very dangerous.

While the programme was suspended, the school continued with the tradition of having midwives in the field, through in-service training and continuous education, he said. Ndiyun lamented that the major challenge for the nursing sector, is the absence of organisation, a situation whereby people do anything in the name of nursing.

Though the programme, in the past, had undergone a series of changes and has been ameliorated, he expressed the need to see the programme translated from French to English. 
For Margaret Ngwayu, the Baptist Nursing School is ready to start training and they are looking for trainers.
