“Myself and another nurse from the UK had the privilege of working at the Health Centre in Rurawe for just over 2 months at the end of last year. Working alongside a team of Malawian health care workers our responsibilities varied from documenting patient attendances, assisting the Medical Assistant with patient assessments, wound care and dressing changes, and distributing medications. The clinic also held an Under 5’s clinic, HIV counselling and Antenatal care which both my colleague and I were able to assist with. Phunzira encouraged us to use our time in Rurawe to focus on particular health care needs for the local community; we held a sexual health/methods of contraception lesson for school-aged children who were in need of information around this topic. Throughout our time there we felt overwhelmingly appreciated by the local community.”
