Learning Visit

School of basic midwifery, Dambatta.

Increase the number and quality of female health workers in rural and conflict-affected areas. 


Visit a Northern Nigerian health training institution successfully increasing the number and quality of female health workers in rural and conflict-affected areas. Learning visits are conducted in small groups enabling participants to engage in discussions with state officials and leaders of health training institutions.


Learn how to scale up the education and training of health workers from the experience of institutions, state governments and communities supported by the eight-year Women For Health programme. A typical visit would cover trips to three states in Northern Nigeria.


To participate in a forthcoming Learning visit please contact us. Participants will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation, food and per diem/DSA costs during the length of the Learning Visit. The Hub does not provide financial support for visits.
