@WHO @DrTedros Affirm Support For Nursing Now 2020 by katty : October 04, 2018, 05:52:22 PM
Today the World Health Organization (WHO) and its Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at its head quarters reaffirmed its commitment to the Nursing Now Campaign
 
In attendance included the Co-chair of the Nursing Now campaign Lord Nigel Crisp (UK Paliarment), Isabelle Skinner (ICN President) who is also a Nurse and a Midwife, Alan Gibbs (Chairman of the Burden Trust), amongst others.



“Without nurses and midwives on the frontlines, universal health coverage cannot happen” -@DrTedros during signing of @NursingNow2020 MoU at @WHO HQ
Speaking at the event Dr Elizabeth Iro, the Chief Nursing Officer of the WHOin welcoming everyone said the event was to help raise the profile of Nursing & Midwifery globally and also its collaboration between itself and other units in the WHO globally and with key partners.
 
You may recall that Dr. Tedros lauched the #NursingNow campaing in  February at Geneva this year in supporting the roles of Nursing and its contribution to achieving the priorities of the WHO, and also in london, the Duchess of Cambridge lauched the campaing.

According to Dr. Tedros in supporting the NursingNow campaign "I did this for selfish reasons and thats because without Nurses and Midwives at the frontlines Universal health discovery cannot happen so I saw opportunities, I saw a force that can really play a big role and when someone comes and says help us support this campaign I want to make it known that what motivated me is I support Nurses and Midwives first then the campaign. I see this in terms of commitment which comes from seeing opportunities and would motivate me to do more because I see the value and opportunities in it.
“A major part of primary health care is nurses. They are the ones you need to work with.” Says @DrTedros
For me when this idea came like i said i saw opportunitites and because i have first hand field experience in the roles of nurses and midwives because i worked so closely with them more often than other categories of health care professionals because they are at the frontlines. Nurses and midwives are like a bridge to the communities and they have a big role to play in primary health care coverage.
 
Major part of primary healthcare in terms of workforce are nurses and unless you are stupid they are the ones you would like to work with and should be more empowered to help healthcare be more effective and the recognition they deserve.
@DrTedros announces 2020 as the year of nursing!
During our first meeting of the Nursingnow campaign, one of my advice was "Ok, NursingNow but NursingNow for a cause which means nursingNow to achieve Universal Health Discoveries otherwise the whole world would say are they looking for recognition, or are they saying VIVA NURSING then what else, but Nursingnow for a cause which we agreed upon it was a brige in the campaign which nurses can get behind.
 
Then on the other hand Nurses and Midwives are the majority of the workforce but still we have shortages and we need to do two things:
1. Recognise those who are already in the field, their roles and help them.
2. At the same time filling the gaps of nurses & midwives in the fields around the globe, through enovative ways which are being discussed internally.
 
We have agreed to start work right now. We need to mobilise our regions and movement starts from the grass roots, mobilise and celebrate the role of nurses and the commuities we serve should celebrate our nurses.
 
Thank you so much for this movement, there is an opportunity for global health and this a campaign with and for a cause which can always succeed. It is not just a campaign to celebrate nurses but also to drive this cause but the celebration would movtivate them and the force would move like a sunami to bring change.
 
After the speaches the memorandum of understanding was signed by all involved.
