This year, WHO has dedicated World Health Day in support of nurses and midwifes, celebrating the incredible work they are doing at the forefront of the COVID-19 response.

“Nurses and other health workers are at the forefront of COVID-19 response – providing high quality, respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and, in some instances, collecting data for clinical studies. Quite simply, without nurses, there would be no response”, the world health organisation says.
