Hunger Project trains community nurses in family planning services by katty : February 10, 2018, 07:33:16 AM
The Hunger Project Ghana, has organized a training programme for community health nurses to build their capacity to offer family planning services, as part of the Maternal and Child Health Improvement Project.

The 15 participants, drawn from Community Health Planning Services (CHPS) compound, constructed by the Hunger project and also known as Epicenters, were trained in Jadelle and Implanon NXT Implant Insertion and removal.



The 15 epicenters are Akone and Baware in the Akuapem North district, Akpo Kpamo and Obenyemi in the Yilo Krobo district, Osonson and Konkoney in Upper Manya district, Apau Wawase in Ayensuano district and Kyeremase in Brim Central.

Others are Sakabo in the Kwahu Afram Plains South, Sobinso Awosoase in the Atiwa district and Kwaboadi in Akyemansa district, all in the Eastern region and Taido in the Mfantseman district of the Central region, as well as Tokome in North Dayi, in the Volta region. 

The Maternal and Child Health Improvement Project is an initiative by the organization, in partnership with the Ghana Health Service, to address the shortage of midwives in the country, especially in the rural areas, by upgrading the knowledge of community health nurses.

This project is to complement the initiative of the GHS, who are already implementing the task sharing by the same means of training community health nurses in the health sector, to be able to take up midwifery roles in the remote areas.

Briefing the GNA, Mr Olesu Adjei, Director of Partnerships of Hunger Project Ghana, said the training would equip them to do community sensitisation and offer family planning services to the communities, as part of the project.

He said the participants would be taken through updates of contraceptive methods, insertion and removal techniques, infection prevention, management of STI’s and family Planning counseling

Mr Adjei said they recognized that family planning services was a tool to improve drastically, maternal health, especially maternal deaths and so the training was to position these community health nurses to provide that service adequately in their respective areas.
