Statement of the Regional Director, Dr Matshidiso Moeti, on the launch of “Nursing Now”

The ‘Nursing Now’ campaign, to be launched in Geneva, London and Kampala on 27 February 2018, aims to improve health globally by raising the status and profile of nursing, and enable nurses to maximize their contribution to achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC). 

‘Nursing Now’ is hosted by the Burdett Trust for Nursing, an independent charitable trust in the UK, supported by the UK Departments of Health, and Trade and Industry, and the Department of International Development. Nursing Now is launched and will be carried out with the engagement and collaboration of WHO and the International Council of Nurses as core partners.
