African Nurse Training-of-Trainers Programme (ANTP) in Diabetes and Depression in Ethiopia and Kenya

As part of ICN’s overall commitment to the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases, ICN continues ANTP in Ethiopia and Kenya in July 2012 in partnership with the Ethiopian Nurses Association and the National Nurses Association of Kenya, and the Dialogue on Diabetes and Depression with the support of the Lundbeck Institute and Lilly Research Laboratories.

The ANTP aims to improve the awareness, recognition and management of co-morbid diabetes and depression. The training sessions, led by a prestigious international and African faculty, provided 60 nurse trainers from throughout Ethiopia and Kenya with essential skills in tackling the challenges faced by patients with both diabetes and depression.

Nurses are the frontline professionals who address the key challenges of co-morbid management of patients with diabetes and depression. Launched in October 2011 with ToT activities in Botswana, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland and Uganda, the Programme will be extended to other global regions in later phases.

K24 TV in Kenya recently reported on the ANTP and their broadcast can be seen on: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJrtVF2oBNM
