Primary Medical Centres: Partnerships

IntraHealth Sponsored Nurses Training Centre

As part of AKHST's commitment to education and academics, the Iringa PMC is now a Nurses training centre in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and IntraHealth. As the first point of patient contact, Nurses are the main pillars of our PMCs. Nurse facilitators from Aga Khan Hospital, Dar es Salaam conduct the trainings on basic nursing skills to ensure that the best care is delivered to all patients that utilize the region's health facilities, including the Aga Khan PMC.

So far over the two years of this project over 260 nurses have been trained. In particular, most recent achievements include training and capacity building of local trainers/facilitators from the Iringa region to lead the sessions under the supervision of AKHD nurses. Additionally, trainings have been expanded to other remote regions of Iringa in an effort to cover the entire region.
