Message from President,Mr Repent Khamis   SSNAMA

I am delighted to bring you greetings as we plan the third  Conference for Nursing and Midwifery. I am indeed happy to

welcome all our nurses and midwives from across South Sudan to this conference. We continue to learn from these events and I

look forward to successful and productive deliberation throughout the conference. The

South Sudan Nurses and Nurses and Midwives Association is a new and fledgling association committed

to ensuring that there is improvement in nursing and midwifery practice and that as nurses and midwives, we provide ethical, respectful

and quality care to all the people of South Sudan Nurses and Midwives are needed now more than ever for better

health care in this country

Message from Director General Nursing and Midwifery, MOH

The Ministry of Health would like to salute the South Sudan Nurses and Midwives Association for hosting this
third Conference in South Sudan. This is a significant event since it is a good time for nurses and midwives to reflect on how they
can make a difference in the delivery of health care. This has to be stronger and of a higher standard. Let us therefore use this
opportunity to find innovative ways that we could improve practice and service delivery especially during COVID-19
pandemic and any other emergencies. On behalf of the Ministry of Health, I would like to congratulate all our nurses and
midwives and I look forward to seeing their active participation at the conference. Best wishes for success
