International Nurses Day is being observed today (12 May 2020) to mark the contribution of nurses in looking after people’s health.
The theme for this year is “Nursing the World to Health”.
Nurses are at the forefront of combating epidemics and pandemics, offering high quality of treatment and care that is professional.
The pandemic of the Covid-19 is a clear reminder of the critical role played by nurses. We cannot win the fight against an epidemic without nurses and other health professionals.
Their services are essential in successfully meeting Sustainable Development Goals or universal health coverage.
