MoH Holds 5-Day Malaria Workshop In Ganta

By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA, Ganta, Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, June 30 (LINA) - The Ministry of Health has held a five-day workshop on the malaria disease in Ganta City, Nimba County.

The training brought together 25 health workers from across Nimba, including Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses and Midwives.

The Deputy Program Manager of the National Malaria Control Program,  Konah Nyan Saiyee, tod the Liberia News Agency that the training is meant to teach participants about how to detect and manage malaria.

He named some topics discussed during the workshop as the history of malaria in Liberia, considering the total number of malaria cases; various species of the parasites that spread the disease; different classes of the parasite species in Liberia; physical examination of malaria patients; and confirmatory diagnosis, among others.

Saiyee said the workshop was necessary as it gave the participants, some of whom are new to the profession, the required skills and expertise to deal with malaria at their various places of work.

He said participants were also taught how to identify the types of malaria and the facility and treatment for them.

Saiyee indicated that through the training, participants will know which of the two types of malaria can be treated by whom and at which facility and the process through which one transfers a malaria patient to another health center.

Speaking on behalf of the participants at the close of the workshop recently, Mrs. Ruth Dolo thanked the government for the training and called on participants to follow the knowledge imparted by the facilitators, adding, "We need to take in everything we have heard here and live by them from today."
