We call for a 🌎🌍🌏 where every woman and girl has access to affordable quality health services.

It's time for #HealthForAll.
It's #WomensDay!

It's time for a 🌎🌍🌏 in which women and girls can freely exercise their sexual and reproductive health rights, and one where all women and girls are treated and respected as equals.

It's time for #HealthForAll

#WomensDay #IWD2020
A strong nursing and midwifery workforce is key to the achievement of universal health coverage.
Invest in more nurse-led and midwife-led services enabling nurses and midwives to work to their full potential.
Nurses & midwives play a critical role not only in delivering healthcare to millions around the world, but also in transforming health policies, promoting health in communities, and supporting patients and families. #WomensDay

Nurses and midwives are the biggest cadre of health workers in the 🌏🌍🌎.
Invest in them to improve health care for all.
Midwives and nurses are with you at every step of life.
They see you into the world and care for you as you leave it, helping you to stay healthy and supporting you if you're sick.
