NANNM Calls on Stakeholders to Curb Quackery in Nursing by katty : May 14, 2018, 01:26:12 PM
The National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) has called for concerted efforts by stakeholders to curb the menace of quackery in the profession.

The president of the association, Mr Abdulrafiu Adeniji, made the call at a news conference to mark the end of the commemoration of the International Nurses Week and the International Day of Midwives on Sunday in Abuja.



The International Nurses Week is an annual event commemorated from May 6 to May 12 and this year’s event has “Nurses: A Leading Voice: Health is A Human Right” as its theme.

The International Day of Midwives is commemorated on May 5 and has as its 2018 theme “Midwives: Leading with Quality Care”.


Adeniji identified quackery, mismanagement, insecurity, poor remuneration, inattention to the plight of nurses and other health workers as major challenges bedevilling the profession, thereby hindering the goal of providing quality care for citizens.

He said even though there were challenges, the menace of quackery could create huge danger to the healthcare system which was  deadlier than effects of viral haemorrhagic fever combined.

He, therefore, noted that “the fight against quackery should not be left for professionals alone”.

“Stakeholders and indeed the entire society must join hands with practitioners to tackle the menace.

“All hands must be on deck to deal with the problem, just the way we fought the scourge of Ebola disease and Lassa fever.
