It's #WorldHealthDay!

All over the world nurses, midwives and all health workers are fighting day and night to keep us safe from the #coronavirus!

Take a minute today to say: #ThanksHealthHeroes!
The #COVID19 pandemic underscores the urgent need to strengthen the global health workforce, of which more than 50% are nurses 👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️.

On this #WorldHealthDay, WHO & @ICNurses @NursingNow2020 are launching the 1st ever State of the World’s Nursing Report:…
According to State of the World’s Nursing Report:
☑ Governments must invest in the massive acceleration of nursing education
☑ 6 million new nursing jobs must be created by 2030
☑ Investments must be made in nurse leadership


The world 🌎 needs more #nurses!

The Report reveals a global shortage of 5.9 million nurses - with the greatest gaps found in Africa, Southeast Asia, Arab States and parts of Latin America.


#SupportNursesAndMidwives: They are critical health workers. Investment in their education and training is vital to ensuring #HealthForAll.


Countries need to ⬆️ nursing graduates by 8% per year, along with improved ability to employ and retain them in the health system.

This would only cost 💲10 per capita, per year.


Did You Know❓
☑ 1 in 8 #nurses works in a country other than where they were born or trained
☑ >80% of the world’s nurses work in countries that are home to 50% of the world’s population
☑ 90% of all nurses are female

More facts:…

Nurses are at the frontline of battling pandemics like #COVID19.

On #WorldHealthDay and every day, let’s show our gratitude by doing our part and following public health advice from WHO and national health authorities:

#COVID19 underscores the critical (and often unmet) need for protective equipment for nurses/midwives, which enables them to safely provide care and reduce the rate of infection in emergency settings.…

#WorldHealthDay #SupportNursesAndMidwives
Happy #WorldHealthDay!

Nurses and midwives are already advocates & innovators in their:
☑ communities
☑ clinics
☑ hospitals
☑ health care system

But they must be properly valued & represented in health leadership roles.

#SupportNursesAndMidwives: Investing in nursing leadership is vital for strengthening the workforce as a whole. Without this countries cannot win the battle against pandemics, or achieve the #GlobalGoals & universal health coverage by 2030…
Nurses rely on masks, goggles, gowns & gloves to protect themselves from the #coronavirus.

On #WorldHealthDay , let’s reflect on what individual action we can take to support frontline health workers.
To the nurses and midwives of the world:

❤ Thank you for working round the clock to fight the #COVID19 pandemic.

❤ Thank you for the difference you are making, every day and everywhere.

❤ Happy #WorldHealthDay 2020, a day that we dedicate to YOU!
