PHC Initiative Africa
This is a capacity building programme pegged at training the hospital frontline workers on Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) for COVID-19 in the primary health care centres. We train 10 to 15 personnel per facility on IPC with emphasis on COVID-19.
These personnel consist of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, medical laboratory scientists, ward attendants, volunteers etc. After the rigorous training, participant is certified at no cost either to the hospital or the participants. It’s 100% free with light refreshments for all the participants.
The goal is to ensure that the frontline workers are better informed on how to protect themselves, their patients, the visitors and the community as a whole.
COVID-19 has affected every sphere of human endeavor directly or indirectly. Hence schools were closed. Nurse Per School campaign is one of our most darling projects meant to improve the health of the students directly and by extension their homes. This is a campaign geared towards ensuring that governments through proper legislations mandate schools (pre-primary, primary and high schools) to have at least a health personnel as a fulltime staff in the school that will nurse the health and wellbeing of the students or pupils through health education in schools and monitoring.
The goal of this project is aimed at improving the breastfeeding culture among the grassroots women in Nigeria through training at least 10,000 breastfeeding counsellors who will provide skilled breastfeeding counselling to potential mothers across the 774 LGAs in Nigeria by 2025. The objectives are as follows:
- To make skilled breastfeeding counselling available to every expectant mother.
- To train 10,000 health care workers, including midwives and nurses, to deliver skilled breastfeeding counselling to mothers and families.
- To ensure that breast feeding counselling is made available as part of routine health and nutrition services that are easily accessible at the primary health centers.
- To protect health care workers from the influence of the baby food industry.
