NATIONAL NURSES AND MIDWIVES QUIZ RESCHEDULED

Published on

The World Health Assembly in 2019 globally declared 2020 as the year of the nurse and midwife. However, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the WHO extended the celebration to May 2021. The Ministry of Health and the entire Nursing and Midwifery Fraternity planned a yearlong activity to celebrate nurses and midwives for their contributions towards health and development of Ghanaians.

In line with this, the National planning committee planned to organize a national nurses and midwives quiz competition for Health Training Schools and Universities in the country. The competing schools were divides among zones: northern, middle, and southern zones. The quiz competition was planned to start on 10th April, today with the Northern zone but has unfortunately been rescheduled.
