NNIA CPD Activities



We are committed to the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of all health practitioners in Africa. This initiative is facilitated by the Nestlé Nutrition Institute Africa (NNIA), and seeks to keep professionals informed of the latest research and developments in the field of nutrition.
Nestlé as the sole funder of the NNIA and a responsible corporate citizen is committed to increasing its efforts in skills development in the country through contribution to continuing medical education. As part of the Government’s monitoring of the private sector contribution to skills development, we are required to provide the following information. Names and contact details are kept on our files but we need to submit statistics with regard to gender and race. We acknowledge the sensitive nature of the information and assure you that this information will not be used for any other purpose. We appreciate and thank you for your support in this regard.


Continuing Professional Development is a programme aimed at registered health professionals to keep them up to date with the latest developments in nutrition and add to their professional growth. 

Every two months the NNIA posts articles are accompanied by questionnaires that are accredited 3 CPD points each.  A different topic will be covered each time,  please note that the  CPD activities are available for 2 months at a time. However, the CPD articles will still be available in the archives of the website for your convenience.

A CPD certificate is available immediately upon completion of an activity
