Bishop Salesius Mugambi today lamented the lack of cooperation from the government on the Tetanus issue. He was the key note speaker at a Billings Ovulation Method Teacher Training Course at Dimesse Retreat Centre, Karen.

The course is organised by Matercare International in association with WOOMB, Australia.

The objective of the conference is to train the trainers of the Billings Method in rural areas and to re-establish WOOMB in Kenya. Sixty participants from Kenya, Tanzania, Congo, Sudan and Zimbabwe are attending.

The Speakers include two Senior Trainers from WOOMB International from Melbourne Australia who were close collaborators for many years with the Drs John and Evelyn Billings. Other international speakers are from Kenya, Canada, Tanzania and Sudan.

Certificates of training (from Woomb, Australia), are being issued after the conference after an exam.
