International Nurses’ Day is a global event celebrated on May 12th of every year to commemorate the work of Nurses in healthcare. The date was chosen as it is the Birth date of Florence Nightingale, a British social reformer and the founder of modern nursing. It is sponsored by the international council of Nurses (ICN). The theme of International Nurses’ Day 2022 is “Nurses: A voice to lead – Invest in Nursing and respect rights to secure global health.”

The biggest moments of the lives of many are spent with a nurse- from when we are born to when we pass away and the many health struggles in between. Nurses’ day and Nurses week provide the perfect opportunities to celebrate the nurses’ life and their sacrificial service to society. They have an important job to do and we must acknowledge that.

As the hospital of Matany, we took this opportunity to honor our Nurses on this day just to say thank you for their endless service to humanity, because they are the most vital link between a doctor and the patient. They put their lives at risk for others where many choose to run to safety. Without the Nursing staff, a medical facility can’t function even for a day. Therefore, the observation of International Nurses Day becomes even more significant, considering these facts.

Our Nurses Day Celebration in Matany Hospital started with a special Mass in our Parish Church. Thereafter there was marching by Nurses and other staff led by a band hired from Soroti that moved around Matany Town Council where many well wishers joined the procession that later entered the Hospital to warm up the patients, and marching ended up at the venue in our Teaching Centre were the main ceremony was held with speeches and a feast. In the evening there were matches between staff and students, followed by a continuation of merry making at the main event venue with a dance.

It was a Joyful day worth our Memories, Happy Nurses’ Day 2022

MUAC (Mid-upper arm circumference) is another anthropometric measure that requires minimal equipment and little training.

The objective of the training that was conducted in Matany was to train VHTs to be able to train household care givers (parents) on how to take the MUAC of their children at household level and then report to VHTs if the MUAC reading is either red or yellow.

The MoH report from the routine Health Management Information System indicates that the number of severe and acute malnutrition admission numbers doubled between January 2020 and October 2021.

Worse still, the recent national report shows that nearly 6.9% of the Ugandan population is food insecure, with infants and young children often bearing the brunt of nutrition deficiency.

Consequently, children’s brain and body development are being compromised negatively, impacting their cognitive potential irreversible. This is why there is need to make critical and immediate screening in households, thus justifying the training of household care givers.

The training was conducted and headed by the Nutrition Unit Staff of Matany Hospital, CN Lotukei Anna and volunteering Diploma student in Nutrition and Dietetics, Ngorok John. The training was supported by UNICEF, through Moroto Regional Referral Hospital.

The overseer of the exercise was Nangiro Ambrose, Health Inspector, Matany Town Council

It involved 37 VHTs, one per village identified.

The exercise was recommended to start immediately and report at the end of the month of April 2022, then follow up to be conducted immediately
