Twenty-Three Jamaican Nurses Are Heading China For Training

On June 22, the Launch Ceremony of China-Jamaica Bilateral Cooperation Nurses Training was held at Kinston Public Hospital.

Addressing the ceremony, Economic and Commercial Counsellor of Chinese Embassy Mr. Fan Jianghong expressed his congratulations to the participants. He commended that the training program is another cooperation in the field of public health between the two countries which is not only a technical training, but also a cultural exchange. He hoped that those participants could learn well in China and make contributions to the public health development of their homeland and the deepening of the friendship between China and Jamaica.

 Minister of Health Dr. Christopher Tufton thanked the Chinese Government for this generous offer which has been seen as an innovation of cooperation in the field of public health and also an important link to deepen mutual understanding and strengthen friendship between the two countries. He hoped the participants to cherish the valuable opportunities to improve technical skills, learn from the peers in China and experience Chinese culture, promoting the development of Jamaica's public health and serving as ambassadors of friendship between the two countries.

This training is a two-month program for 23 nurses selected from two hospitals. They will start for China at the end of June.
