According to the statement released on the official website of the World Health Organisation, the organization joins hundreds of partners worldwide to highlight the importance of nurses in the healthcare continuum and thank them for what they are doing for the people. "Historically, as well as today, nurses are at the forefront of fighting epidemics and pandemics - providing high quality and respectful treatment and care. They are often the first and sometimes the only health professional that people see and the quality of their initial assessment, care, and treatment is vital," the statement read. The statement also asked the government to initiate steps towards investing in nurses. " In this year of the Nurse and the Midwife, now more than ever, it is essential that governments support and invest in their nurses. COVID19 reinforces the need for investment in nursing jobs, education, leadership," the statement concluded.
