Non-communicable disease

ICN recognises there is an urgent need for nurses everywhere to engage with their colleagues, communities and all sectors to address the growing threat of non-communicable disease. Our projects include the African Nurse Training Programme which aims to improve awareness, recognition and management of co-morbid diabetes and depression; the Grow Your Wellness online resource centre which provides a variety of educational, assessment, intervention and advocacy materials to support health professionals engaging in health and wellness activities; and participation in the WHO Global NCD Action Plan 2013-2020.
