Welcome Message

I welcome you all to the Maternal and Child Health Department of the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Ghana. The department attends to all issues concerning Maternal and Child Health Nursing. We are passionate about maternal morbidity and mortality, and all issues of neonates, infants, children, and adolescents. The department is also involved in issues of gender, women’s health, and reproductive health. As a result, we teach courses designed for these issues and faculty members do research in the various areas of Maternal and Child Health as well.


Issues of Maternal and Child Health are critical to the development of every nation. For this reason, this department ensures that students who have chosen MCH as an area of specialization are well prepared to provide such care to the public. The department has trained and still poised to train nurses to attend to maternal and child health issues in our health sector.
If you have any plans to apply for any of our programmes, please consider courses in the Department of MCH in the University of Ghana School of Nursing and Midwifery.
