World Health Day 2020

World Health Day 2020

World Health Day falls on 7th April every year;  a day that aims to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization (WHO)

World Health Day 2020 focuses on the vital role played by nurses and midwives in providing health care around the world, and calls for a strengthening of the nursing and midwifery workforce.

This year on World Health Day,  the first ever State of the World’s Nursing Report was published. The report provides a global picture of the nursing workforce  and sets the agenda for data collection, policy dialogue, research and advocacy, and investment in the health workforce for generations to come.
