Events for the Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020

Nurses and midwives work tirelessly to improve the health and wellbeing of the community. To celebrate their invaluable contribution to global healthcare, the World Health Organization has declared 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife (YONM).

We are proud to celebrate this historic occasion with a range of exciting events and initiatives throughout the year that nurses and midwives can engage with that recognises our past, present and future. We want to celebrate achievements, enable professional practice and empower our nurse and midwives throughout the year.
