The Community Health Practitioners Registrations Board of Nigeria (CHPRBN) yesterday inducted 1,300 health practitioners to help other medical workers fighting COVID-19 pandemic.

The induction, according to the Acting Registrar of board, Alh Ajimi Kaka Mustapha, was to ensure that the professionals were certified to thoroughly man the primary health care centres.

Speaking at the induction ceremony which was held in Abuja, Mustapha urged the inductees “to be good ambassadors of the profession and remain persons of impeccable character” by projecting the board image through their dealings with the general public.

He said 1,300 candidates who passed the last National Examination of the Board were awarded Community Health Officers Certificate which is equivalent to Higher Diploma to qualify for the induction.

“Today marks a new dawn and a spectacular milestone achievement in the history of the community health profession in Nigeria as the maiden edition of the formal induction of qualified, certified and licensed community health officers into the professional fold,” he said.
