Government urged to take steps to attract women to nursing profession

12 May 2021

Pakistan is one of the five countries facing the largest deficit of nurses, with the World Health Organisation also calling on the country to take steps to double its nursing workforce. This target could be achieved by giving a dignified status to the profession in society, making it safe, diversified and financially sound which could attract women to it in large numbers. These points were raised by speakers at a seminar recently organised at the Aga Khan University in connection with the International Day of Nurses and Midwives.
