Field Photo: Certified Clinicians in Uganda

by Katie Carroll | Jun 19, 2014

We are so excited to share with you the June graduating class of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) training in Nakivale, Uganda! The group completed a two week training (one week lecture, one week hands-on) on IMCI.



A high percentage of clinicians haven't had any formal training or certification by the Ministry of Health in IMCI. Thanks to your generous support of our Uganda programs, this year MTI will be able to send five volunteer teams to train clinical staff. Our volunteer teams will co-train the course with Dr. Patrick Okello in our Uganda office, and two representatives from the Ministry of Health.

The goal is to certify 55 clinicians from nine different MTI clinics throughout Uganda - all serving refugee populations. The clinicians have different specialties, ranging from midwives to nurses to clinical officers.

This training will help provide children with quality healthcare that they so desperately need in Uganda, dramatically improving survival rates for children under five. You are making this training possible. Thank you!
