individuals, families, and communities.”

A recent World Health Organisation (WHO) Report says the following:

“Nurses and midwives account for nearly 50% of the health workforce. Of the 43.5 million health workers in the world, it is estimated that 20.7 million are nurses and midwifes, yet 50% of WHO Member States report to have less than 3 nursing and midwifery personnel per 1000 population (about 25% report to have less than 1 per 1000), according to the 2017 Global Health Observatory.”

That figure has been echoed by the International Council of Nurses (ICN), a federation of more than 130 national nurses’ associations, representing more than…
