  • International Nurses Day – 12 th May

    International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May the 12th, the
    anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth and is used to mark the contributions
    that nurses make to society.

    Historically, as well as today, nurses are at the forefront of fighting epidemics
    and pandemics - providing high quality and respectful treatment and care.
    They are often the first and sometimes the only health professional that people
    see and the quality of their initial assessment, care and treatment is vital.

    Nurses account for more than half of all the world’s health workers, yet there is
    an urgent shortage of nurses worldwide with 5.9 million more nurses still
    needed, especially in low- and middle-income countries.

    The Covid-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the vital role nurses play. Without
    nurses and other health workers, we will not win the battle against outbreaks,
    we will not achieve the Sustainable Development Goals or universal health
    coverage. So lets take today to celebrate all that our nurses do for us & our
    country.
