What We Do

Training courses

We support healthcare training, in particular the ETAT programme. ETAT (Emergency Triage, Assessment and Treatment) is a training course developed by the World Health Organisation, designed to provide knowledge and skills in the emergency management of sick children.

In 2008 we helped run a major ‘training of trainers’ programme to build local capacity.

We work with the College of Medicine and Malawi Ministry of Health to promote and seek funding for ETAT training.

We also work with our partners Malawi College of Health Sciences and Malamulo College of Health Sciences, supporting ETAT training of student clinical officers and medical assistants and nurses; future essential healthcare workers who provide the majority of medical care in Malawi. In 2011 we supported a ‘training of trainers’ programme for MCHS lecturers, In May 2012 ETAT was introduced to the student curriculum for the first time. To date, over 1000 students have been trained in paediatric emergency care.
