The world needs 9 million more nurses and midwives if it is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. Join the World Health Organization and its partners in this year-long effort to celebrate the work of nurses and midwives, highlight the challenging conditions they often face, and advocate for increased investments in the nursing and midwifery workforce.
Investing in young nurses and midwives is essential for improving health and health care globally. The Nightingale Challenge is a global movement to equip and empower the next generation of nurses and midwives as leaders, practitioners and advocates in health. Accept the challenge today, and commit to provide leadership and development training for your young nurses and midwives during 2020.
