School for female health workers opened in Mehtarlam, Laghman

mehtarlam jpgA new school for Community Health Nursing Education in the provincial capital Mehtarlam, Laghman, was inaugurated on Thursday 7 February 2013.

Twenty four girls from remote districts of the province have been enrolled and they have started their 24 months education to become community health nurses.

The Community Health Nursing Education program for females was introduced in the health system of the Ministry of Public Health in 2011, in order to address Afghanistan’s lack of nurses as well as the overall shortage of female health workers, particularly in rural areas. The program is similar to the community midwifery training program which has played a vital role in increasing the reproductive health services in the country.

The goal of the program is to graduate female health workers who are primary and community health-oriented rather than disease‐oriented, and who are able to provide care to well and sick individuals, families and communities. Upon graduation the nurses will be employed in a health facility close or near to the remote district where they are from.

This 28 months project will be implemented as a joint venture between the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan and the Norwegian Afghanistan Committee, through the funding of Swedish Agency for International Development (SIDA).
