Midwives will now have to train for 18 months as against 12 months

The government has increased the training period for midwives from 12 months to 18 months beginning 2019 in order to cater for curriculum changes which are meant to improve service delivery.

This was revealed by the President of Zimbabwe Confederation of Midwives (ZICOM), Dr Lillian Dodzo during an annual general meeting for midwives held in Nyanga.

"There is an increasing recognition that providing quality universal health coverage is an investment in social and economic well-being of the nation and a key contributor to the wealth and productivity of any country. Attaining universal health care is when a country has midwives with sound knowledge and skills for managing obstetrics and neonatal emergencies and appealed for the creation of separate establishments of midwives," said Dr Dodzo.

The Vice Chairperson of the Health Services Board, Professor Auxillia Chideme Munodawafa, who was guest of honour at the conference, urged the midwives to get into research and come up with scientific solutions and recommendations for midwifery challenges and dilemmas.

"Surely there has to be a difference between my midwife who delivered me 71 years ago and today's midwife with a masters degree or PHD from NUST. Midwives should work hard in reducing the current mortality rate which is at 651/1000," she said.

The conference which was held under the theme "midwives responds to the global agenda on sustainable development and universal health care," was attended by scores of midwives representatives from across the 10 provinces.
