When the World Health Organization, or WHO, was first formed on April 7, 1948 as a specialized agency of the United Nations, humanitarian experts got right to work, gathering facts and data on health risks around the globe as well as the responses to related emergencies, both localized and worldwide. But of late, there’s a higher than average chance that if you think of WHO in 2020, you think of March 11, the official date when they declared COVID-19 a pandemic
and sent nations around the world into the tailspin of rapidly growing quarantines.
Each year on World Health Day, pandemic or not, WHO is recognized for their efforts to support human health in every nation, and this year, they provided a message of their own.
This World Health Day, we honor the contribution of nurses and midwives, recognizing their vital role in keeping the world healthy. Nurses and other health workers are at the frontlines of COVID-19 response, putting their own health at risk to protect the broader community. Comprising more than two-thirds of the health workforce in the WHO Western Pacific Region, nurses are critical in responding to health needs in all settings and across the lifespan.
