Few Research Projects In Africa Conducted By Or For Nurses, Who Deliver Most Health Care

New York Times: Little Research Is Done in Africa by or for Nurses
“While most health care in Africa is delivered by nurses rather than doctors, little medical research is done by nurses or for them, and too much is determined by donors’ priorities rather than by the challenges that African nurses actually are facing, according to a new study … published by the International Journal of Nursing Studies and presented last week at a nursing conference in Nairobi, Kenya…” (McNeil, 7/13).
