The Wellbeing Foundation Africa: A Continuous Commitment - Improving the capacity of health workers to deliver life-saving care to people in Nigeria.
This week, the @wellbeingafrica Foundation Team is proud to welcome our Founder, Global Advocate HE @toyinsaraki, Laura Nels, Director JNJ Community Health Africa, and LSTM Global Programs Director, Dr. Charles Ameh to Abuja and Lagos - engaging with the Federal Ministry of Health, @lstmnews, @medicaidcf, @drealvisionaries and @jnjglobalhealth and nationwide RMNCAH, Midwifery and Nursing Stakeholders at The Co-Creation Workshop: Understanding The Challenges and Gaps in Oncology Nursing, Mental Health Nursing and Midwifery Education In Nigeria.
Building health workers’ capacity to provide specialized oncology services, midwifery, and mental health care is essential to providing life-saving care to patients in healthcare facilities across the country.
Since 2015, the Wellbeing Foundation Africa has partnered with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine @lstmnews and @jnjglobalhealth to Improve The Availability And Quality Of Maternal And Newborn Care in Nigeria, pioneering and implementing the innovative 5-Year Emergency Obstetric & Newborn Care (EmONC) Project in Kwara State. This lifesaving skills-building for health workers builds the capacity of health workers to provide skilled care to mothers and babies, engendering safer births.
The WBFA #SDG3 commitment works to ensure that healthcare workers especially nurses and midwives are equipped with the skills necessary to care for mothers and babies throughout the continuum of care.
The WBFA is supporting and participating at the Co-Creation Workshops: Understanding the Challenges and Gaps in Oncology Nursing, Mental Health Nursing and Midwifery Education in Nigeria as Advocacy & Communication Partner to the LSTM and JNJ.
