Our cpd activities can benefit you in your daily practice

The Nestlé Nutrition Institute Africa (NNIA), 1 of 18 chapters of the Global Nestlé Nutrition Institute (NNI), is committed to contributing to nutritional education in the continent. As a result, we are committed to facilitating the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of all health practitioners in the East and Southern Africa Region (ESAR).

As a leading nutrition organisation, we aim to keep registered healthcare professionals informed on the latest research and developments in the field of nutrition, adding value to their professional growth and daily practice. This aligns with the NNIA’s mission and vision, click here to find out more about the NNIA.





Gain access to healthcare conferences when you sign up with NNIA

The NNIA posts activities in the form of scientific articles and/or webinars accompanied by multiple- choice questionnaires that are accredited for 2 or 3 CPD points each. Members must obtain a minimum score of 70% to attain the allocated CPD points. To keep our NNIA members updated, regular email alerts on upcoming CPD activities are sent out.

The CPD activities are based on pertinent topics, and the most recent activities are available for the entire year of accreditation. This gives all healthcare professionals the opportunity to complete our CPD activities by the 15th of December each year.

The CPD activities offer maximum flexibility to suit your busy schedule as they are multiple choice, can be completed at any time, and automatically save your progress to allow interruptions. CPD activities additionally offer 2 attempts to meet the pass rate requirement for each questionnaire.

A CPD certificate is awarded immediately upon completion of an activity. Those registered with the HPCSA will have their points updated on the HPCSA portal regularly. You will also be able to view your NNIA CPD activities and points at any time on your NNIA profile.

Non-HPCSA accredited healthcare professionals are encouraged to inquire with their relevant professional bodies on whether NNIA activities will be recognised for CPD points.
