KET supports the next programme of workshops focussing on Health, held in March 2020
KES Chairman Dr P Ngully conducted another programme of workshops in a remote area of Nagaland called Kiphire District, which was attended by four tribes/sub-tribes in the region – the Sangtam, Yimchunger, Thikhir and Sema - in order to promote awareness of good health and hygiene practices.
These workshops, held annually, are aimed at women leaders within these far flung rural communities.
Dr Ngully said: "Our Mind Your Health workshops went very well as we were able to bring four conflicting communities under our platform which I hope will open the way for reconciliation."
The workshops were completed successfully and the following resolutions were made:
1. To promote immunisation.
2. To promote ante-natal care for all pregnant mothers.
3. To promote child birth in hospitals (Institutional Delivery).
4. To promote mental health by increasing love and reducing shame.
5. To promote initiatives for improvement of the health care centres.
6. To promote good rapport and healthy relationships with health care providers.
This year, each participant on the course received a certificate of achievement confirming what they have been taught, and recognising them as "Wellness Ambassadors" of KET and KES.
