Trained Nurses’ Association of India (TNAI) Manipur treasurer Ibeyaima said TNAI Manipur has been facing hardship in raising funds for the annual conference, despite having around 20,000 trained nurses and 3,000 nurses being active members of the Trained Nurses’ Association of India (TNAI).
Ibeyaima said that due to the heavy schedule of the members, the collected fund has not reached the required amount and appealed to the members and the nurses working at different places in the state to contribute to the cause and help in making the annual conference a success.
President of TNAI Manipur, Naorem Tangbi devi said the TNAI branches of the Northeastern states will be hosting the 77th Biennial Conference hosted by TNAI on Jan 30 and 31, 2023 at the Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra Auditorium, Guwahati, Assam with the theme “Invest in Nursing for Global Health”.
She said that the event will be a mega event which will be attended by more than 2,000 delegates from all over India and in order to pull off the event, the event has been funded from their own pockets as the state does not provide any funds for the association.
Tangbi mentioned that the event will include presentation of Scientific Papers, Exhibition of Scientific Posters and Concurrent sessions on different specialities of Nursing. She mentioned that only 80 members have registered for the event and has appealed that more members register and join the conference.
