WISH has been at the epicenter of promoting nursing empowerment through its involvement as a founding partner of the global Nursing Now campaign in 2018. Since then, together with local and global partners, WISH has organized several courses, symposia and workshops on leadership. with the aim of making the voice of nurses heard when it comes to developing health policy.
In 2018, WISH published its report titled “Nursing care and universal health coverage (UHC),” which outlines how strengthening nursing and midwifery within the broader health workforce will enable rapid, high-quality, and cost-effective scale-up of UHC. Last month, WISH published its report on Nurses for Health Equityurging rapid investment in nurses and nursing and highlighting how nurses can strategically address the social determinants of health and advance health equity in health systems and communities.
