Project Report | Feb 22, 2016
Developing nurse leaders in advocacy for NCD care, an Ethiopian experience

By Dr Yoseph Mamo | Project leader

The vision of empowered nurses, acting as leaders to realize the ideals of ‘access of care to the rural poor’, is a compelling one. We started to recruit appropriate nurses to lead this effort in three health centres: Shebe, Agaro and Asendabo, each of them located about 50 kilometres south, west and east of Jimma University Hospital respectively.

While recruiting, we also began advocating for THET to support a rotating fund, providing essential medicines and to address the universities mandate and lack of involvement in health care. We quoted the social accountability article of the universities vision and mission statements, that they aim to make to research an entry-point to further health care training and that providing quality service to patients (subjects) and the training of nurses (data collectors) are an ethical requirement of the institution.

Funding for training, coaching, mentoring, supervision and transportation were mobilised, yet again, by THET.
