2020 Year of the Nurse and Midwife

As the world commemorates the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, ICAP honors the dedication of the nurses in its own programs and in the everyday lives of patients around the world — emphasizing the outsized leadership role that they should play in delivering health care and shaping health policy. 

This year, and every year, ICAP celebrates the contribution of nurses and midwives. For ICAP, nurses are at the heart of any solution for the world’s most pressing health challenges. With nurses at the helm advocating for patient-centered approaches in health care and health policy, practical and affordable solutions for the world’s most pressing health challenges are reachable.

Nursing Now 

ICAP is proud to be an official partner of Nursing Now, a global campaign to improve health by raising the status and profile of nursing.

Nursing Now is a growing social movement with an active network of groups working to influence global and national policy. The initiative is a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing run in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the International Council of Nurses, and is supported by a Campaign Board made up of nurses and non-nurses from around the world.
