ARC meets in South Africa
The African Health Profession Regulatory Collaborative (ARC) for nurses and midwives is a four-year partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Commonwealth Secretariat; the Lillian Carter Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility at Emory University; the East, Central and Southern Africa Health Community (ECSA-HC); and the Commonwealth Nurses Federation (CNF).
ARC convenes nurse and midwife leaders from participating African countries in the east, central and southern Africa region, for the purpose of facilitating south-to-south collaboration around professional regulatory issues, such as scope of practice, licensing, accreditation of training, and continuing education.
