Under the Basic Healthcare Provision Fund (BHCPF), the Anambra State Primary Healthcare Development Agency (ASPHCDA) in collaboration with National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA) organised a 5-day orientation exercise for 60 newly recruited midwives.
The exercise, which was held in Awka, took place from May 17 to May 21.
The Commissioner, State Ministry of Health (SMOH), Dr Vincent Okpala urged the participants to pay attention to the lectures so as to avoid making costly mistakes at work.
Dr Okpala was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Mr Linus Nwankwo.
The commissioner said that the duties of the newly recruited were important and critical to the state stressing why they were employed at this point in time.
“We depend a lot on the activities at those health centres, where you will be posted to work so you must be there and do the job that is expected of you.’’
