5th May of every year is a day earmarked for the celebration of ‘international day of the Midwife’ worldwide. The day was instituted and launched in 1992 by the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) to recognize the role and importance of midwifery in maternal, neonatal and child health.
In Ghana, this year’s celebration was held in the Western Regional capital, Takoradi under the theme;“The world needs midwives now more than ever” with a sub-theme “Midwives for a better tomorrow”. High profile dignitaries including the Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) Mr. Felix attended the ceremony.
In his solidarity message to the gallant midwives, MrFelix Nyante commended midwives globally for their commitment to reducing maternal and child mortality. Mr. Nyante stated that Ghana needed
proactive leadership skills and professional training to churn out professional midwives and nurses for the country.
‘’when midwives are properly trained they can contribute to the reduction of two thirds of all maternal and child deaths” he stressed.
