Why is working with nurses important?

There are more than 19 million nurses and midwives worldwide. In some countries, nurses are the only health professionals that people encounter.

Imagine the progress that could be made in non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention if all 19 million of those nurses were supported with the right knowledge, skills and opportunities to promote healthy lifestyles.

At C3 we’ve used our international nursing expertise to develop a comprehensive model to combat the NCD epidemic.
