Welcome to ETAT+

This course equips health workers – medical doctors, nurses, midwives and clinical officers/physician assistants – the locally applicable knowledge and skills required to care for seriously ill newborns, infants and children. Advice on managing common illnesses is summarized in protocols that are based on systematic reviews of relevant evidence.

A typical ETAT+ Courses takes 3-5 days and covers management of common emergencies, newborn resuscitation and illnesses such as malaria, pneumonia, severe malnutrition, neonatal sepsis and others. Instructors are well trained and dedicated – they have trained more than 10,000 health workers (including undergraduate and post-graduate students) since 2006.

Also available on this website are important guidelines from other agencies such as WHO as well as a number of tools developed to assess quality of care more formally.

We will also try and highlight some of the most important recent guidelines or research findings relevant to hospital care in Africa. If you would like to bring important findings to our attention or suggest we host something on this site, feel free to contact us
