The Hospital Nursing and Midwifery Care learning programmes are designed for nurses, nursing assistants, midwives, and midwife assistants working in the hospital setting, and have the aim to cover all competences required for general nursing and midwifery care. The programmes include curriculum development of nursing and midwifery courses, the creation of various innovative pedagogical tools, and the rolling out of the learning activities in a number of projects in the target countries.

The nursing and midwifery initiative is being implemented in Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Mali, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Yemen.

Our approach

Each unit of the curriculum consists of a theoretical document, a session plan, learning activities, learning tools, and a formative assessment.

For each programme, before implementation, a specific assessment is developed for all participants to undergo, to provide a good baseline of the level of competencies among the structures’ workforce. This is called Competency Gap Assessment, or CGA. Once the programme finishes, the participants are assessed again, which serves as an indicator of the output of the programme.
