New NNCGSI challenges coming soon!
As we prepare to launch two new NNCGSI challenges in collaboration with the World Innovation Summit for Health – Qatar, we wanted to share some information about this initiative and how you can get involved!
What is the NNCGSI?
The Nursing Now Challenge Global Solutions Initiative (NNCGSI) connects young nurses and midwives around the world to share ideas and encourage nurse and midwife-led innovations that resolve global health issues.
The NNCGSI aims to:
- Facilitate global interaction and partnerships between nurses and midwives
- Encourage the development of practical nurse and midwife-led solutions globally, thereby supporting the career development of participating nurses and midwives
- Provide a space for nurses and midwives to share expertise and demonstrate the power of their knowledge through their innovative solutions to everyday global health challenges
- Raise awareness of global health issues and develop bold, practical ideas to improve public health.
How does it work?
The NNCGSI works with a partner organisation to identify a theme for the challenge. Over two months, participants are provided with resources relevant to the chosen thematic area, including articles and webinars that will help them develop their solutions. At the end of the two months, participants submit a concept note which outlines their solution to be judged by a panel of global experts.
