Summary of Activities

In addition to providing a 3-year diploma and hands-on training at the only national referral hospital in South Sudan, Juba Teaching Hospital, RMF-supported Juba College of Nursing and Midwifery (JCONAM) requires students to attend workshops on Respectful Health Care and Psycho-Trauma Support. The most recent workshop was conducted November 15th to November 17th, 2016. The workshop’s 3 main facilitators were:

  • Siama Abdalla Lado – RMF Midwifery Tutor
  • Jemelia Sake – National College Tutor
  • Judith Draleru – UN Midwife Volunteer

Because of the large number of students, the 3 workshop facilitators and RMF South Sudan’s Team Leader Dr. Taban Martin agreed that students be divided into 2 groups to ensure full engagement and participation.
