Midwives Body Restates Vow To Cut Maternal Mortality
By Prince Nagbe

ZWEDRU, May 3 (LINA) – The Acting Director of the Southeastern Region  Midwifery Training Program in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County, Rex Moses,
has restated his institution’s preparedness to help government reduce maternal mortality in the country.

He said the school trains students from six Southeastern counties to become professional midwives, who, upon graduation, return to their various counties to render health services, specifically in the area of midwifery.

Moses made the disclosure to Information Minister Lewis Brown on Thursday during the minister’s visit to the institution as part of his five-county assessment tour of government development projects.

Moses named the six counties benefiting from the school as Grand Kru, Maryland, River Cess, River Gee, Sinoe and host Grand Gedeh.

According to him, the institution has graduated 100 students since 2008, all of whom have returned to their various counties and are contributing to the health needs of the people at various health facilities.

He added: “There is no health facility in the Southeast that does not have a midwife graduate of this institution.”

Mr. Moses told Minister Brown that 142 students in the senior, junior and freshman categories are enrolled at the school to undergo three years of intensive training to become professionals, after which they sit the state-board test to become registered midwives.

Meanwhile, Moses is appealing to the Government to assist the institution with at least two mini buses to help transport students to various health centers in Zwedru and surrounding towns for “clinical activities”.

The Director also named the issues of electricity, internet, fencing of the compound as well as stipends for students as major challenges facing both the students and the administration.

He is, therefore, appealing to government to assist in this direction, so that the institution can be more effective and efficient.
