On 16 January 2020, the World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA) launched a commitment: Project 2020 – with the objective of taking free, accredited healthcare education to frontline health workers in low and middle-income countries, in recognition of the extraordinary contribution of nurses and midwives and in celebration of the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, as 2020 is designated by the World Health Organization.

Just 7 months later, and in the throes of a global pandemic with nurses and midwives on the frontlines everywhere, WCEA has reached more than 200, 000 of these skilled and courageous health care professionals with one million courses, including 240, 000 focused on COVID-19.

“ WCEA has been with these  precious front line health workers every day, ensuring the free delivery of up to date, accredited courses and information from the most qualified sources, including The Aga Khan University (SONAM), RCNi, Royal College of Midwives, John Hopkins University CCP and many other additional outstanding institutions,” said David Montgomery, WCEA Chief Executive Officer.   “We are especially grateful to the International Council of Nurses, stakeholders, sponsors, and our skilled and committed team, for all of their support in this magnificent achievement”
