To develop a critical mass of self-sustaining knowledge, skills and capacity in Nutrition and Health, within the global healthcare and public health workforce, resulting in significantly improved health practices and outcomes.

Mission

To establish the NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health as a world leading and highly innovative think-tank, training academy and knowledge network, bringing together the best of education, research, evaluation and advocacy, particularly in Nutrition-related aspects of health and healthcare systems.

Vision

To develop, provide and evaluate the impact of medical/healthcare nutrition education (as a health improvement tool), delivered to a significant proportion of the global workforce, building sustainable capacity and driving implementation of knowledge into policy and practice.

Strategic Aim 1

To significantly strengthen the medical/healthcare nutrition evidence-base by identifying gaps, undertaking/commissioning primary research as well as evidence synthesis/interpretation, and improving access to high quality, translatable information for policymakers and practitioners at a global level.

Strategic Aim 2

  • We prioritise nutrition education as a key strategy to achieve our vision, seeking to improve the health of individuals and populations by embedding nutrition into medical/healthcare systems.

  • We strive for medical, healthcare and public health professionals to have sufficient knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide effective nutrition advice and care to patients as well as the public.

  • We believe in multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches including doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, nurses, pharmacists, researchers, academics and other stakeholders.

  • We collaborate widely with practitioners, students, educators, researchers, professional associations, learned societies, the third sector and industry partners.

  • We promote research capacity building as well as ‘Good Research Practice’ to enhance the quantity and quality of potentially translatable evidence relating to key nutritional problems of clinical and public health importance.

  • We draw from a range of implementation science approaches in line with the ‘Knowledge-to-Action Framework‘.
