This week, UNICEF Azerbaijan and the Ministry of Health hosted a five-day Training for Resource Module Trainers (ToT) at Medical Base College No.2 as part of the "Strengthening Patronage Services" initiative implemented with the financial support of the European Union. 

Medical staff from medical colleges in Baku and the regions as well as 25 teachers of postgraduate training courses attended the training. One of the main objectives of the training is to increase both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to expand the role of nurses in the development and protection of children's health.

Training will be included in both the in-service curriculum and as part of the medical college course and expected to contribute to the initial technical base of nurses. The training program is currently implemented in four districts where the "Strengthening of Patronage Services" programme is underway and will expand across the country in the future.
