NGO’s & Sponsors
If you have a project requiring access to nurses, midwives, or doctors, please contact us to find out how we can help
The WCEA network comprises of more than 380,000 nurses, midwives, and doctors, throughout Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. If you need to reach this target audience, with the specific motivation to improve healthcare, we can help you do that.
2020 has changed the landscape for training and events. If you are running a health-related conference or webinar, we can not only host it for you, we can attract the attendees.
Whether you want us to help you run a webinar, conference, deliver education, or undertake a field study, we can do this in a highly targeted fashion.
A wealth of demographic information is retained about each healthcare professional, including age, experience, gender, location, employment status and many others. This helps us ensure that we maximize the impact of the communications and deliver relevant results.
There are multiple methods of engaging with the healthcare professionals, with over 300,000 of them subscribed to mobile notifications. These include our community platform, mobile app messages, emails, SMS ans WhatsApp.
As COVID-19 spread across the globe, we at the Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation began strategizing how to support frontline health workers in low- and mid-income settings. One early result was the formation of a new collective partnership with funding from the Johnson & Johnson Foundation among three of our partners, The World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA), The Aga Khan University School of Nursing and Midwifery East Africa (AKU) and the International Council of Nurses (ICN).
Together, we set out to design a mechanism to deliver vital training and education opportunities to frontline health workers managing dual imperatives: to prevent and treat COVID-19 while also providing primary health care amidst a potentially devastating interruption of health services, particularly in already fragile health systems.
