Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel »

Nurses and midwives make up more than half of the health workforce and provide services from promotion and prevention to treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care, throughout people’s lives –from birth to death. In this International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, World Health Day 2020 will shine a spotlight on the vital role they play in providing quality health and social care, under the slogan “Support nurses and midwives”. The campaign will be used to mobilize action and encourage investments to strengthen the nursing and midwifery workforce.

The goals of the World Health Day campaign are to:
  • trigger a wave of public appreciation for the work of nurses and midwives and the part they play in delivering health and social care;
    raise the profile of nurses and midwives within the health workforce;
    catalyse support and investment in nurses and midwives.

What is World Health Day about?

7 April 2020 is the day to celebrate the work of nurses and midwives and remind world leaders of the critical role they play in keeping the world healthy. Nurses and other health workers are at the forefront of COVID-19 response - providing high quality, respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and, in some instances, collecting data for clinical studies. Quite simply, without nurses, there would be no response.

In this International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, World Health Day will highlight the current status of nursing and around the world. WHO and its partners will make a series of recommendations to strengthen of the nursing and midwifery workforce.

This will be vital if we are to achieve national and global targets related to universal health coverage, maternal and child health, infectious and non-communicable diseases including mental health, emergency preparedness and response, patient safety and the delivery of integrated, people-centered care, amongst others.

We are calling for your support on World Health Day to ensure that the nursing and midwifery workforces are strong enough to ensure that everyone, everywhere gets the healthcare they need.
