Over the last few decades, the field of nursing has grown by leaps and bounds, with the importance of its role in the healthcare system more and more exemplified. And things are just elevating further.
Nurses Are The “Bridge” Of Healthcare
In January of 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) had a meeting where the director-general of the W.H.O., Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, made the official proposal to declare 2020 the year of the nurse and the midwife. Dr. Ghebreyesus spoke of how nurses are the “bridge” of healthcare, a crucial link between the people of the community and the complex healthcare system. Nurses are on the “front lines” of healthcare, he says, and because of this, they are the key factor in achieving universal health coverage, which is an initiative the W.H.O is spearheading for the sake of bringing adequate healthcare to humans across the globe.
Dr. Ghebreyesus, who is an incredibly accomplished and impactful public health advocate, spoke with much pride and endearment of the nursing body, expressing how the role of nursing shall be “amplified and promoted” as the work of W.H.O. and Nursing Now moves forward.
Towards the end of his declaration, he sealed the deal by bringing attention to the fact that 2020 is also the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale, and according to Dr. Ghebreyesus, “we need to celebrate people like her who have contributed greatly to humanity.” READ MORE AT https://nurse.org
