More about NCD Care Training Program

Competent and qualified healthcare providers such as clinical nutritionists matter for Africa’s healthcare system since nutrition and dietetics are overlooked! As a reminder, over the next two decades, the continent will have to supply the healthcare system with competent and qualified health providers at least one clinical nutritionist for 13000 patients or one for every 500 patients who are living with one or more non-communicable diseases(NCDs) including diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease to meet the demand of affordable and safe preventative care for those NCDs using scientific evidence based medical nutrition therapy and dietetics care. Because, the continent is going through a nutrition or diet transition as contributing risk factors of NCDs which result in an epidemiology shift from infectious diseases to non-communicable diseases for Africans.

Developing strong scientific evidence and competency based training according to the Canadian Dietetics Care Standard for clinical nutritionists in Africa therefore represents a promising opportunity to boost access to affordable medical nutrition and dietetics care and also create self-employment opportunities for the healthcare professionals. This training will be offering three different packages with different benefits.

Our theory of change rests on the belief that scientific evidence based practice training, be it short terms education or the transfer to practical Canadian clinical dietitian knowledge, skills and competencies to African clinical nutritionists, are deemed to increase the capacities of participants to provide safe and affordable nutrition and dietetics care and also launch dietetics care entrepreneurial ventures.
