Statistics have shown by 2016 there will be a shortage of over 500,000 workers in East Africa alone .In line with our Business Development and Expansion Strategy, and in an effort to bridge this gap, the Hospital, a key player in the health care Industry, established The Nairobi Womens Hospital Medical Training College (NWH-MTC) in June 2008. The vision of the college is “Transforming healthcare education in Africa” and to date over 300 students have been successfully trained and certified. About 35% of their alumni have been absorbed by different hospitals. The College is committed to delivering innovative, relevant and yet much needed healthcare education.

TOTO BABY CARE
What is Toto Baby Care-
TOTO is derived from the root Swahili word meaning ‘child’.
It is total commitment to a child’s health by reducing the morbidity (state of being diseased) and mortality (death) rates among infants and children. Some of the topics to be covered include Basic First Aid, infant/breast feeding, neo- natal bathing, cord cleaning, infection control and abnormal signs and symptoms.
How do we intend to achieve this-
By training baby care givers
Who are baby care givers-
Child minders/ House-helps
The course is tailor made to fit each category of participants
The course is every 2nd Saturday of the month at Hurlingham and Ongata Rongai branches and every 3rd Saturday of the month at Adams Arcade from 9.00a.m – 5.00p.m
How does this course benefit you-
For the working mother there is a peace that comes from knowing that ones children are well taken care of.
Parents who can provide full-time care themselves need help in childcare.
