Dr Ghebreyesus asserted, “On International Nurses Day, I thank ALL nurses around the globe for their work & help to deliver health For All, especially to those working in places of conflict, natural disaster, or emergencies such as COVID19 for 2+ years. Thank you for providing safe care for those who need it”.

Nursing and Midwifery Global Community of Practice – an initiative started by the WHO, offers resources and support for nurses around the world.

Different activities are carried out in countries all across the globe.

The official Twitter handle of WHO, on occasion, cited, “Today is International Nurses Day! Nurses play a critical role in health care and emergency response. Nurses are often the first to detect health emergencies & are key in disease prevention and in the delivery of primary health care, including promotion, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation”.

Meanwhile, the regional agency of the international organization stated, “Today is International Nurses Day. Let’s invest in education, jobs, practice and nursing leadership. Working conditions and tax incentives must be analyzed and improved to increase the hiring and retention of nursing professionals. We must invest in expanding their role in primary health care services”.

“The European Region faces a shortage of health workers, especially nurses. Investing in training and more jobs will improve availability”, following the above statement, the international health agency added.
