7TH APRIL EVERY YEAR
This year, the World Health Day is set aside for the cause of nurses and midwives.
Fact is that, with the on-going coronavirus pandemic, Nurses and other health workers are at the forefronts, providing respectful treatment and care.
Without the help of nurses, there would be no response. On this World Health Day, the Ondo State Civil Society Platform on Health commends Nurses and other health workers at the frontline of fight against coronavirus in Ondo State.
We, along with our partners, will be making a series of recommendations to strengthen the nursing and midwifery workforces.
This day is a global health awareness day and to ensure that ‘Everyone everywhere gets the healthcare they need’, we must all take a part in this year’s world health day to show our support and respect to all the health professionals out in the World.
The World Health Day every year focuses to achieve national and global targets such as maternal & child health, mental wellness, emergency preparedness & response, patient safety, etc.
This day of every year seeks attention to all such global health concerns that mankind must work on to curb its repercussions.
