A network of nursing leaders hosted a preconference session devoted to Nursing and Global Health. The session, entitled Nursing Leadership in Global Health: Implications for the Future of Nursing Education, Scholarship, and Interprofessional Practice, brought together key nurses from all over the world.
The meeting explored the central role of nurses and midwives in achieving HIV epidemic control and universal health coverage. Funded through a grant from the Columbia University office of the President, ICAP at Columbia University worked with the Yale University School of Nursing, the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC), Johns Hopkins University, the University of Washington in Seattle, and Kamuzu College of Nursing at the University of Malawi for this event. Many of the presenters and attendees were members of ANAC. We summarize the presentations and key themes from the day’s proceedings in this report.
