Nursing Now Challenge Global Solutions Initiative (NNCGSI)
Since its launch in June 2020, the Nursing Now Challenge Global Solutions Initiative (NNCGSI) has provided the opportunity for nurses and midwives around the world to connect, share experiences, and develop innovative solutions to ongoing global health challenges.
Our challenges to date have focussed on a variety of topics including:
- brain injury recovery & rehabilitation
- creating & sustaining community health
- the climate crisis
- driving the digital health agenda
- vaccine equity & acceptance (1)
- vaccine equity & acceptance (2)
- challenges facing midwives around the world
- antimicrobial resistance
- nurse well-being & retention
For each challenge, we collaborate with partners to provide regular webinars and share resources to inspire, motivate and support participating nurses and midwives.
What is the NNCGSI?
The Global Solutions Initiative connects early-career nurses and midwives around the world to share ideas and encourage nurse and midwife-led innovations that resolve global health issues.
The Nursing Now Challenge Global Solutions Initiative aims to provide a platform for nurses and midwives to share expertise and demonstrate the power of their knowledge through their innovative solutions to global health challenges.
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 solution. At the end of the two months, participants submit a concept note which outlines their solution to be judged by a panel of global health experts.
