Continuous Professional Development Strategy for Primary Health Care nurses - Kiribati

Project Details

Improving the capacity of frontline staff  strengthens immunisation coverage and has the potential to strengthen the health system, particularly the primary health care sector.

This project supports the Ministry of Health and Medical Services,(MHMS) the Ministry of Employment and Human Resources (MEHR) through the School of Nursing, and the Nursing Council of Kiribati to develop a workforce development strategy that encompasses a CPD component and supports a competent and well supported primary health care staff.

We will be reviewing:

  1. The current situation of the current training and professional development mechanisms within Kiribati
  2. How to embed a CPD program for primary health care workers an into supportive supervision
  3. The cost for implementing primary health care CPD nationwide
