Speech by Dr. Eluzai Abe Hakim, Consultant Physician and Medical Adviser to the Juba Link on the occasion of the graduation of the first Diploma Holding Nurses and Midwives at the Juba College of Nursing and Midwifery (JCONAM), Thursday 29th August 2013, Juba, South Sudan.
I wish to offer my hearty congratulations to the first Diploma graduates in Nursing and Midwifery from the Juba College of Nursing and Midwifery (JCONAM). My congratulations also go to the principal of the College, Ms. Petronella Wawa, the staff of the College, the Director General for Nursing and Midwifery at the Federal Ministry of Health, Mrs. Janet Michael, for working diligently to turn the vision of such a College into reality in exceptionally difficult circumstances. The cooperation of successive Ministers of Health and their respective Undersecretaries has been exemplary and deserve special mention. I regret the fact that I am unable to attend this historic occasion due to difficulty in taking time off work.
