Celebrating Nurses and Mid Wives Work

Being members of large multidisciplinary health-care teams, nurses and midwives make a huge difference in building on the promises established in the 2018 Astana Declaration on Primary Health Care, providing patient-centered services near to the population.


Nurses and midwives make up nearly 50 percent of the world's health workers. There is a global shortage of health workers, particularly nurses and midwives, who account for more than 50 percent of the current health workers shortage. Nurses and midwives face the biggest needs-based shortages in South East Asia and Africa. iFor all countries to meet Sustainable Development Goal 3 on safety and well-being, the World Health Organisation reports that another 9 million nurses and midwifery would be required by the year 2030. 

Nurses play a vital role in improving wellness, avoiding diseases and providing primary and clinical treatment. They have medical services, which would be essential to establishing comprehensive health coverage. Achieving wellbeing for everyone would rely on the amount of well-trained and informed, well-regulated and well-supported nurses and midwives being compensated and respected. On behalf of World Health Day, WHO on its twitter page tweeted the below post.
