Nurses lead the way in achieving universal health and wellbeing

23 September, 2019

As Heads of State and Government meet in New York to discuss Universal Health Coverage at the highest political level, Primary Care International has co-authored a blog with Indian not for profit Swasti on the essential leadership role of nurses in achieving universal health and wellbeing. “It is essential we recognise the key leadership role that nurses have to play in achieving universal health coverage. To do this their value needs to be recognised and amplified, they need the correct support and training, and the systems around them also need to change.” (Lord Nigel Crisp, co-Chair of Nursing Now, the global campaign aiming to raise the status and profile of nursing). We are calling for a shift in mindset and in countries’ regulatory framework, as well as an investment in training and support, to allow the nursing professionals to deliver the best value of care they are qualified to provide.
