Nurses Must Cease Every Opportunity To Learn So They Can Take Leadership Role by Heinz Mwaipopo

Did you know that Melu Mizinga the former Managing Director for Stanchart in Zambia was once a Nurse? She is currently the Director and CEO for Barclays group Southern regional representative.

Did you know that Samora Marchel former president of Mozambique was a Nurse before he became the president? Did you know that Jean Kapata Mandevu constituency MP is a Nurse by proffession.

In fact, I have known a good number of people that have risen up from being a simple Enrolled Nurse to the level of being tutors/doctors/lawyers. Don’t give an excuse that there are no positions for degree holders in institutions . Have a degree in Paediatrics, education Critical Care Nursing and any course in line with your career . You don’t know what the future holds. Prepare for the future, dynamically systems of employment are changing. Age is no longer a factor. Your highest qualification speaks volumes. If you don’t want to be frustrated, go back to school. Otherwise get ready to be supervised by the young guys who are the age mates of your children. You will be saluting them like in military and security wings. What are the things to do?

(1).Stop giving excuses and procrastinations.
(2).Rewrite your high school examinations like George Weah president of Liberia.
(3). Change your mindset and routine activity that are not giving favourable results.
(4). Stop spending the whole week at church or on television shouting “I receive”. Start working on something. God rewards the labour of your hands.
(5).Be determined and be focussed. These people that are making it in life, have been working bit by bit. Most ACC holders did not achieve it in one day.
(6). Never ever despise the small beginnings, the latter might be greater than what you think.
(7). You are growing old now, stop playing games of young ones in the name of having fan. Build your destiny . Yes you can make it.
See you at the top the bottom is too congested. Have a lovely week and take care.72

Nurses in Politics: Nigerian Nurse Wins Senatorial Seat

The wave of the media has taken a new turn in the nursing community today with the news of a nurse senator elect (Hassan Nasiha) whose victory came after the shocking zamfara supreme court judgement today.

In an unprecedented judicial pronouncement, Nigeria’s Supreme Court awarded governorship, National Assembly and state Assembly elective posts to the the runner up in to the Zamfara. This is owing to the fact that the 2019 All progressive Party primary election was not properly conducted (court findings) in accordance with the Constitution of the party.

Gusau, who has contested under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2019 senatorial election lost the election to Aliyu Ikra Bilbis (APC) – Zamfara Central.

Community Health Extension Workers in Nigeria Want to Be Granted Autonomy to Open Clinics

Community Health Extension Workers (CHEW) and Community officers in Lagos State, on Friday advocated a review to the extant Health Service Reform Law 2016, to legally authorise practitioners to own and operate private healthcare clinic.

Members of the CHEW, operating under the aegis of Association of Private Community Health Practitioners, made the proposition at a stakeholders parley organised by the Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Health Service. Speaking for the group, Mr Wole Jonathan, a licensed Community Health Officer in private practice, argued that most of CHEW members possessed required skills, experience on the job. Jonathan said that community health workers were certified to operate community-based Public Health Care centres as afforded in the national health policy. He said: “We should be allowed to use our certificates and license to own and operate private health care facilities. “We are here on account of the state health reform law which allows other health care providers in the state – nurse, medical laboratory technician, pharmacy technician and others, that were trained by state government owned institutions, to work in government establishments and to use their license if they like to operate in the private sector.

“In the law, we observed that it is only the community health group – community health officers and the community extension health workers – that are not given any opportunity to operate; that was why we petitioned the House of Assembly to look into it.

“So, we are here today to plead that the Lagos Health Service Law be reviewed to allow us to own and operate private clinic and serve as operation officer because we have vital license to that effect.

“We have cited that even the law that affords for Primary Health Care centre, a law of Lagos State, recognize that the community health officer be in charge of government clinic.

“So, if one have the qualification which makes one able to be in charge of PHC, is the same qualification not liable to operate private clinic effectively?”

Also speaking, Dr Lateef Lawal, the Permanent Secretary, Primary Health Care Board, however, asked the body to rather go through their regulatory body and pressurise them for the desired inclusion to be effected at the National Assembly.

He said that this would make their demand seamlessly adhered to at the state level. “There are no fears, the only reason for the agitation is because we have unemployment in the market and that is affecting everybody.

“If the government is able to absorb all the community health officers, there won’t be any call for this; they have their members who are out and unemployed who have to be catered for, so they have to think out of the box and say how can we actualise this?

“Our position is that we cannot be singing different tunes, we have the national body, the Federal Government, National Council of Health; they need to harmonize all the contending issues and it becomes a national act.

“If you have any opinion at all, it is easier to go to that council, argue your case out, they look at the merits and once it becomes a national law, it becomes easier for people like me to say okay this is the standard.

“Then we key into it, or else we would have a snowball effect where they will be agitating repeatedly,” he said. Lawal called for increased funding to the health sector from the national budget as a way out of the unemployment problem. “Nigeria is a signatory to the 2015 declaration, which makes it mandatory that 15 per cent of our national budget should be dedicated for health, but as at now the maximum you can probably get is between five and eight per cent. “We say that health is wealth, education is also important, you can’t joke with the two, they may look intangible but they form the bedrock of any progress in the every society.

According to Mrs Abiola Idowu, Acting Executive Secretary of Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA), the bone of contention was not the issue of ownership but operation.

Idowu said that care givers needed to be equipped with standard practice because of the importance attached to the life saving business. “Currently, the law recognises their (CHEW) practice under the standing order under the auspices of a supervising physician that is what gives them the authority to use that order.

“Their cadre (community health practitioners) is not recognized under the health sector reform law of 2006 which establishes HEFAMAA, to operate centres.

“Each cadre is trained for specific purposes, doctors, nurses respectively, while the community health practitioners are trained to act as a linkage between the community and the health facilities.

“For them now to say they want to operate a facility, I don’t think their training qualifies them for that.

“We are saying they cannot work alone without supervision. We agree that they can work in private establishment due to dearth of nurses. “Anyone can own a health facility but to run it we have a minimum standard in terms of basic amenities necessary to provide health care services,” she said. Olusola Sokunle, Chairman, House Committee on Health, who summoned the stakeholders to the meeting, said that it was premised on a petition the group wrote to the Assembly for prompt intervention. Sokunle and another member of the committee, Mr Noheem Adams, informed the stakeholders that the House would look at the matter critically and get back to the concerned group.

72 World Health Assembly Empowers Community Health Workers

Member States at the World Health Assembly today agreed three resolutions on universal health coverage (UHC). They focus on: primary healthcare, the role of community health workers, and the September UN General Assembly high-level meeting on UHC.

Primary health care towards universal health coverage
The first resolution urges Member States to take measures to implement the Declaration of Astana, adopted at the 2018 Global Conference on Primary Health Care.
It recognizes the key role strong primary health care plays in ensuring countries can provide the full range of health services a person needs throughout their life – be it disease prevention or treatment, rehabilitation or palliative care. Primary health care means countries must have quality, integrated health systems, empowered individuals and communities, and that they must involve a wide range of sectors in addressing social, economic, and environmental determinants of health.

The resolution calls on the WHO secretariat to increase its support to Member States in this area. WHO is also required to finalize its Primary Health Care Operational Framework in time for next year’s World Health Assembly. WHO and other stakeholders are tasked with supporting countries in implementing the Declaration of Astana and mobilizing resources to build strong and sustainable primary health care.

Community health workers delivering primary health care
The second resolution recognizes the contribution made by community health workers to achieving universal health coverage, responding to health emergencies, and promoting healthier populations. It urges countries and partners to use WHO’s guideline on health policy and system support to optimize community health worker programme, and to allocate adequate resources. At the same time, the WHO Secretariat is requested to collect and evaluate data, monitor implementation of the guideline, and provide support to Member States.

Community health workers have a key role to play in delivering primary health care – they speak local languages and have the trust of local people. They need to be well trained, effectively supervised, and properly recognized for the work they do, as part of multi-disciplinary teams. Investing in community healthworkers generates important employment opportunities, especially for women.

Universal health coverage high-level meeting

The final UHC resolution endorsed by Member States supports preparation for the UN General Assembly high-level meeting on universal health coverage in September 2019. The resolution calls on Member States to accelerate progress towards universal health coverage with a focus on poor, vulnerable and marginalized individuals and groups. The UN high-level meeting will call for the involvement of governments in coordinating the work required across all sectors to achieve universal health coverage. Member States identified key priorities such as health financing, building sustainable and resilient people-centred health systems, and strengthening health workforces. They also emphasized the importance of investing in and strengthening primary health care.
