Gambia: WC Regional Health Management Holds Meeting

The West Coast Regional Management Team II, newly created by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, and which covers Kombo South, Central and East; and the Fonis, recently held its first quarterly in-service meeting with health workers within its purview, at its regional office in Brikama.

The meeting, which was sponsored by the Reproductive and Child Health Unit of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, provided the opportunity for the officers in charge of the various health facilities within their catchment areas to give facility reports of their areas among others.

Speaking in an interview with the Daily Observer shortly after the meeting, Musa Camara, the senior administration officer at the Regional Health Management Team II, explained that the forum was aimed at briefing the health staff about the new health region. He added that it was also meant for the health workers to involve the male folk in their reproductive health issues in their activities as well as strengthen behavior change within the communities.

Camara thanked the RCH for funding the event and urged the health staff to be vigilant in their work, noting that this is the only way they can achieve the desired results.
