Government designates 2019 as the year of nurses

11 May 2019

The government of Pakistan has designated 2019 as the year of nursing. Recognising their role in promoting universal healthcare and safeguarding women’s rights, the government is working to enhance the role and voices of nurses and midwives in making a health policy. These views were expressed by speakers at the Aga Khan University School of Nursing and Midwifery at an event held on 10 May in honour of International Midwives’ Day and International Nurses Day.
