A LANDSCAPE ANALYSIS OF NEONATAL NURSING EDUCATIONPROGRAMS IN AFRICA





A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN THE COUNCIL OF INTERNATIONAL

NEONATAL NURSES (COINN) AND PROJECT HOPE


The Council of International Neonatal Nurses (COINN) and Project HOPE have collaborated on the development of a Landscape Analysis that attempts to examine the extent of specialized neonatal nursing education programs across Africa. This analysis is aligned with the WHO strategy 4: Create and train a new cadre of specialized neonatal nurses and examine the extent to which Neonatal Bachelor and Master degree programs are in existence or in development that aim to prepare this cadre in sub-Saharan Africa. With the establishment of the COINN Global Technical Advisory Committee (GTAC) and Community of Practice (CoP)-specifically the Community of Neonatal Nursing Practice (CoNP), funded by the Gates Foundation, it was recommended that GTAC, in collaboration with Project HOPE, provide an update anddescription on the existing neonatal nursing degrees as well as identification of developing programs in Africa. A previous analysis was initiated in 2021 by Project HOPE and COINN but was limited due to existing resources. The experience from this earlier analysis was helpful to meeting the challenges of the current more extensive analysis.
