The International Council of Nurses and Nursing Now call on all governments to make 2020 a landmark year in health on the way to fulfill the promise of Universal Health Coverage.
2020 has been designated as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in recognition of the contribution nurses make, and the risks associated with nursing shortages. As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. Nursing organisations around the globe will be planning numerous events to profile and promote nursing. Nurses and Midwives are key to the achievement of WHO’s goal of Universal Health Coverage, because they play a critical role in health promotion, disease prevention and the delivery of care in all settings.
2020 is a chance to showcase what nurses can do to improve health for everybody, everywhere and anytime.
The International Council of Nurses (ICN) and Nursing Now call on all governments to make 2020 a landmark year in health, on the way to fulfilling the promise of Universal Health Coverage.
