* Non Nursing Posts / Moremi, The Courageous Queen: Biography and Life by katty: November 16, 2017, 06:23:51 AM
MOREMI AJASORO, Princess of the Yoruba, was a figure of high significance in the history of the Yoruba peoples of West Africa. She was a member-by-marriage of the royal family of Emperor Oduduwa, the tribe's fabled founding father.

BIOGRAPHY

The Oloori Moremi lived in the 12th century, hailed from Offa, married to the then king of Ile Ife, a kingdom that is said to have been at war with an adjoining tribe who were known to them as the Forest people (Ìgbò in the Yoruba language, though the said tribe is believed by scholars to have had no relation to the contemporary Ìgbòs of modern Nigeria). Scores of Ife citizens were being enslaved by these people, and because of this they were generally regarded with disdain by the Yoruba city-states.

Moremi was a very brave and beautiful woman who, in order to deal with the problem facing her people, offered anything she had to give in sacrifice to the Spirit of the river Esimirin so that she could discover the strength of her nation's enemies.

She is said to have been taken as a slave by the Igbo and, due to her beauty, married their ruler as his anointed queen. After familiarising herself with the secrets of her new husband's army, she escaped to Ile-Ife and revealed this to the Yorubas who were able to subsequently defeat them in battle.

Following the war she returned to her first husband, King Oramiyan of Ife (and later Oyo), who immediately had her re-instated as his Princess Consort. In order to fulfil the pledge she made to Esimirin before embarking on her mission, her son Olurogbo was given in sacrifice to the Spirit because this is what it asked her for when she returned to its shrine.

The Edi Festival is said to have then been started as a means of celebrating the sacrifice the princess made for the people of Yorubaland. Furthermore, a number of public places are named after her in contemporary Nigeria, such as the female residence halls at the University of Lagos and Obafemi Awolowo University.

* News / Amethyst Oral HIV Test Kit Helps You Test Yourself For HIV by katty: November 15, 2017, 04:48:45 PM
If you do not know your HIV status for fear of being stigmatised, you should grab a self-test kit and do the test yourself.

The individual undertaking the test has control over the test, it gives confidence and it removes issues of stigmatisation.

Nigeria's record on prevalence of HIV/AIDS is not certain, but the new strategy will help in this regard, the government hopes.

The Nigerian government says it has adopted eight new test kits to fast track the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Some of the kits will also enable Nigerians test themselves of certain ailments and also carryout other relevant tests.

To keep people informed as regards the new strategy, the Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, on Tuesday held a dissemination meeting on an evaluation report on Amethyst HIV 1 and 2 Self-test kits, and 10 anti-body based HIV rapid Test Kits 2016.

It is a breakthrough that would allow the government interfere with the algorithm.

“In terms of first line screening, we have added Unigold, Determine and HIV Quick check," told the gathering at the dissemination of the report

“For confirmation, the second line, we have adopted Diaquick, First Response, Care start, HIV status and Multisure.

“For breakers we recommend Multisure and HIV status,” he said.

"He, however, stressed that what is being put across as the Algorithm is what the government might use in the country," he further explained.

Another strategy that the Nigerian government has also adopted is the 90-90-90 UNAIDS targets, which is aimed at ensuring:

1. 90 percent of people know their HIV status,

2. 90 percent of people living with HIV are enrolled in treatment regime;

3. 90 percent of the people on treatment have their virus suppressed.

Another report on the evaluation of Amethyst HIV 1 and 2 self test kit (Saliva cassette) was also disseminated by the Ministry of Health.

According to the report, Amethyst HIV 1 and 2 self test kit was evaluated using kits approved in the National Algorithm.

“The oral kits gives sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of 93.9%, 92.8% and 93.2% respectively.

Self Test For Ailments



“The use of the oral Amethyst HIV 1 and 2 self test kit for self testing for the presence of HIV 1 and 2 in mucosal samples is recommended by the ministry,’’ the report said.

This evaluation and tests are targeted at encouraging Nigerians to do self test, as a way of eliminating issues of stigmatisation.

“We believe it is a new innovation and new advancement we want to put in medicine.

“We want to see more people conducting testing for HIV, genotype, DNA by themselves, in such a way that blood sugar and blood pressure is being tested.

“Self test gives confidence; it takes away influence of providers, removes bias and stigmatization," Adewole said.

Here is a tweet the Minister also shared on his Twitter handle on the breakthrough.

* News / Kebbi State First Lady To Distribute School of Nursing Forms for Free by Idowu Olabode: November 15, 2017, 09:14:20 AM
 The Wife of the Kebbi State Governor and First of Kebbi State has purchased 50 School of Nursing forms to be distributed to intending student nurses free of charge. In a message posted on her Facebook page yesternight, she urged anyone interested in becoming a Registered Nurse in the state to come and obtain the form free of charge.

Below is a copy of the message on her facebook page as observed by Nursesarena.com:

Her Excellency Dr Zainab Bagudu has purchased 50 admission forms for prospective entrants into the Kebbi State School of Nursing and Midwifery for Basic Midwifery Program, Post Basic Nursing and Remedial Program for this academic session.

Interested female candidates from the 3 states with minimum entry requirements (Five ordinary level credits in not more than two sittings in English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology) should contact Hafiz Ibrahim on +2348034068234 or come to Medicaid Diagnostic office at No 3, Makama Street, Rafin Atiku Area Birnin-Kebbi. Birnin Kebbi from Tuesday, November 14th 2017.

Successful candidates will be monitored and must have a referee and guardian. This is to discourage abuse as candidates have simply refused to turn up for the exam in the past thereby depriving others of the opportunity.

The measure is part of Her Excellency's resolve to encourage girls enrollment into professional careers especially healthcare sector which is facing an acute shortge of human resource.

It will be recalled that the Governor's wife has been supporting qualified indigent students with admission opportunities to study in various institutions of higher learning across the state to complement the efforts of the Government in improving the quality of education in the State.

Thank you.
