2020: the year of the nurse!

At a recent meeting,  the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that 2020 will the Year of the Nurse, celebrating nursing and midwifery! The proposal was formally put forward at the meeting by a representative from Jamaica, supported by representatives from Australia and Eswatini. The Executive Board burst into spontaneous applause when it was announced.

This is certainly exciting news for nurses.

2020 was chosen as this is the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth and also the culmination of the Nursing Now Campaign. More information on the WHO EB is available at http://apps.who.int/gb/e/e_eb144.html


This is great news for Nurses, including Immunology Nurses. We look forward to seeing changes and progress ahead.
