WORLD HEALTH DAY, 2020
The whole world is currently facing a health crisis as we fight the coronavirus pandemic, healthcare professionals are the frontline soldiers in this war and the World Health Day 2020 carries more importance than ever.
As we mark WHD 2020 today, we want to extend a huge thank you to all of the amazing doctors, nurses, health workers, scientists and volunteers working to keep us safe and supporting our health and well-being every day.
The tagline of World Health Day 2020 is ‘Support Nurses and Midwives’. To generate attention towards their contribution during the COVID-19 outbreak, the World Health Day will “highlight the current status of nursing around the world”.
WHO also pledges to make a “series of recommendations to strengthen” the nursing and midwifery workforce. The year 2020 has also been designated as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, as part of the efforts of the World Health Assembly to strengthen this sector of health workers.
At Sakinah Medical Outreach, we recognize the remarkable efforts of nurses and midwives, and all other health workers, as they put their lives on the line to make the entire humanity safe and healthy.
Thank you, we celebrate you.
