1. The staff of the clinic and the advisory committee see the immediate need to develop the maternity care offered by the clinic. A midwife is urgently needed. A nurse-midwife would be ideal so the maternity care could be expanded and more outreach opportunities could be addressed.
To meet this need, we would like to recruit a registered nurse or a nurse-midwife from the States. At the same time, we are seeking out committed Ghanaian young people to send to nurses’ training.
2. A second immediate need is for a registered nurse to replace Cathy for her scheduled 2011 furlough year.
