Call for corporate sponsors

WHOCC2018 will be attended by health professionals from around the world, who will share how they are incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in striving for universal health care.

Globally, there are 44 dedicated Nursing and Midwifery collaborating centres, and delegates who attended the 2016 event came from over 30 nations. WHOCC2018 is an outstanding opportunity to showcase your support for the SDGs.

Join us to find out what can be done, make connections, share ideas, and find out what you might be able to do personally to help create a healther, safer and more equitable world.

Sponsor a participant or make a donation

For many of our nursing and midwifery colleagues from developing countries the opportunity to attend a global gathering is not within their or their organisation's financial means. To make WHOCC2018 truly global a sponsorship and donation portal has been set up.

The SDGs focus on embracing the diversity of communities and working with each other to create opportunities and enduring benefits that bring an end to poverty, protect the planet and ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity. With this in mind, we ask that you make a small donation to provide financial assistance to attendees from developing countries.

As a first priority, participants travelling from countries on the 2017 United Nations List of Least Developed Countries will be offered financial assistance from the money raised. Remaining funds will be offered as assistance packages to participants from developing nations not on the priority list.

Receipts can be requested for taxation purposes.

Donations can also be given at the time of Delegate Registration.

Delegate financial assistance

Limited financial assistance is available to support conference delegates to attend WHOCC2018.

Financial assistance is reliant on money raised. Priority will be given to participants from WHO Collaborating Centres in the first instance.

One (1) participant from each of the 2017 United Nations List of Least Developed Countries will be offered financial assistance in the first instance.

Financial assistance will be provided in equal allotments to successful applications in the form of conference fees and accommodation. Please note, financial assistance is unlikely to cover the full costs associated with travel, visas, accommodation, conference fees, meals and stipend.

To apply for financial assistance, please download and complete the Application for Financial Assistance (in PDF or Word format, available below) and forward it to the Conference Committee by email to with the subject line Request for Financial Assistance.
