During 2019, we enhanced our platform to work in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East and collaborated with regulatory bodies, professional associations and educators to deliver a training programme for nurses, midwives and doctors. Today, we are thrilled to announce that we have reached the 3,000,000 courses taken milestone in low- and middle-income countries since the launch of the programme on 16 January 2020.

Here, at the WCEA, we are proud to celebrate with all of you the 3,000,000 courses taken in low and middle-income countries since the launch on January 16, 2020. The mission of the ONE WORLD Project was to significantly improve access to quality evidence-based education and using technology to develop skills, improve the delivery of patient care & achieve better health outcomes. The eHealth, mHealth solutions, and CPD are necessary for Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage.

We are incredibly grateful to the Johnson & Johnson Foundation for supporting our COVID-19 response.
Thanks to this support and the education partnership with the Aga Khan University School of Nursing & Midwifery in East Africa, we trained over 270,000 nurses and midwives across Sub-Saharan Africa and provided close to 600,000 COVID-19 courses CPD certifications.

Without the help of our global partners the International Council of Nurses, the World Medical Association, all our stakeholders, donors, and education providers that milestone would not be possible today.

There are many challenges in the delivery of education in parts of Africa, Asia & the Middle East. These include access to computers, internet access, data costs, low bandwidth networks, the ability to train learners with the technology, and the ability to reach learners initially.

The WCEA platform has been designed specifically to overcome these challenges. As well as being a computer-based learning platform, it also has an app, which enables the learner to use their Smartphone, download courses when they have access to the internet, and study them offline.
