INTERNATIONAL NURSES WEEK 2020 – BY MIRZA ALI
Join us in celebrating International Nurses Week 2020 “A Voice to Lead – Nursing the World to Health” – a special week dedicated to honour and appreciate the contributions of nurses and nursing to our world.
International Nurses Week 2020 is extra special as the whole year is designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife in honour of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth! As the world continues to face this COVID-19 pandemic, we realize more than ever the importance of nursing and nurses in our society. The Health Policy, Research and Planning Department of The North West Regional Health Authority celebrates this day by giving thanks and showing appreciation for these health professionals is an uplifting and motivational act.
Help us in thanking and supporting the more than ten thousand nurses locally, as well as the more than twenty million nurses across the world who are saving lives and making a difference every day!
