KMTC eyes widening partnership to enhance training

The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) is eyeing partnership with the Ministry of Health (MoH), the World Health Organization (WHO) and Vital Statistics to enhance quality training, Deputy Director Academics Dr. Nyawira Mwangi, representing the CEO, has said.

“The partnership is geared towards skills development for College students, to enable them to record the good quality cause of death in line with the WHO principles and standard International Classification of Diseases (ICD) guidelines,” she added.

Dr. Nyawira was speaking Wednesday, June 8, 2022, during a meeting with representatives from the three organizations at the College Headquarters in Nairobi. 

She noted that equipping College graduates with these skills would improve documentation and reporting of these vital statistics resulting in the generation of quality mortality statistics.

Representing Vital Strategies, Ms. Winnie Nzioka, also embedded in MoH, and Mr. James Mwanza from the New York Head office indicated the willingness of the two organizations to provide support in achieving this goal. 

Nairobi Campus Deputy Principal Ms. Felistus Muinde, Departmental Heads Mr. Felix Mutua (Clinical Medicine), and Ms. Catherine Mwaura (Nursing) welcomed the partnership.
