Description du stage : ENA and CNA in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (CANAC: a Canadian association committed to fostering excellence in HIV/AIDS nursing, promoting health, rights and dignity of persons affected with HIV/AIDS and to preventing the spread of HIV infection) and the Zambian Nurses Association (ZNA: a southern leader in "Caring for Caregiver" models), will be working together on the Ethiopian Nurse Needle Stick Injury Research Project (ENNSIRP). This project was developed to research existing policies, assess site conditions, develop site-specific interventions, and final evaluations, in five different regions of Ethiopia. The objective of this Ethiopia-based project is to improve nurses' occupational health and safety, particularly as it relates to the heightened risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens, in clinical settings. Project activities will lead to strengthened knowledge and capacity of nurses in the area of prevention and support to reduce occupational risks and promotion of improved workplace policies and conditions in five sites across Ethiopia.
