PSX_20200306_192042.jpgKenya was well represented by us during the 5th commonwealth nurses and midwives conference. We presented two papers during the two days of the conference. OGWENO Stephen presented a paper of the innovative use of mhealth to make health communication and education on cardiovascular health accessible to all across the country with the case study being MyHeart Ke project. During his presentation he mentioned that it’s very important that we begin to invest in sustainable eHealth solutions whose content is evidence based. He noted that there has been a rise of mobile apps that provide irrelevant content and that evidence was key in transforming and educating people on NCDs through such solutions.

Kevin Oduor on the other hand made a presentation on the drug free youth project. During his presentation he noted that young people need to engaged actively in the fight against drugs and substance abuse. What came out strongly for him was that there is need for us to become more creative and innovative in how we address young people when it comes to health. He insisted that in order to beat drugs, young people have to be educated and transformed into ambassadors for change and people capable of transforming other peers too. The drug free youth was an example of the many ways innovation in health care will be key in improving health literacy on various topics.

In conclusion, the movement is on and this is us just getting started. Our call to action from the conference is that, CAN WE STAND UP AND DECIDE TO DO IT NOW! THE WORLD DEMANDS OF THE INNOVATION AND CHANGE THAT WE HAVE DEEP WITHIN.
