On 19th October the three training workshops on Family Planning came to a close, which took place in one of the halls at the ministry, organised by the Project for the Reduction of Maternal and Neonatal Mortality, implemented by UNFPA, in collaboration with the Ministry for Health, and financed by Noble Energy.
A total of 82 health professionals from the province of Bioko Norte received their corresponding certificates during the closing ceremony for the course, which was overseen by the Vice-Minister for Health and Social Welfare, Damaso Mitiha Ondo.
During the ceremony, words were heard from a participant at the seminar with a motion of thanks; the synthesis report on the work from a project expert was presented; there were a few words from the UNFPA representative, and the presentation of certificates took place.
The meeting concluded with a closing address from the Vice-Minister for Health, who congratulated everyone, together with the organisers and backers.
The aim of the project is that by 2019 80% of women of reproductive age and newborn babies in Bioko and Kie-Ntem will have access to quality information and maternal and neonatal health services.
