There are more than 20 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 20 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.
We inform, engage and support nurses in NCD prevention to help them:
The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, recognised C3 on 30 October 2017 with its internationally renowned award, the Archon Award, for exceptional leadership in advancing health in the world. Through this award, C3 joins the ranks of previous award recipients His Highness the Aga Khan, Save the Children, Sir George Alleyne, Dame Cicely Saunders and Dr Jonas Salk.
