Sustainable Development & the Year of the Nurse & Midwife -- 2020
Sustainable Development and the Year of the Nurse and Midwife: 2020
The year 2020 marks the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth and the 100th of her death. The World Health Organization is marking the year by highlighting the contributions of nurses and midwives to healthcare systems around the world, designating it as the year of the nurse and midwife.
In support of that endeavor, we have assembled a collection of global voices of nurses, midwives, and their interdisciplinary partners for an editorial series highlighting nurses and midwives contribution to achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The sustainable development goals are the next evolution of the Millennium Development Goals with one key difference: The sustainable development goals are for all countries, not just low- and middle-income ones. A collection of 17 global goals, the sustainable development goals are the first time humanity has come together to agree on key areas for promoting a better quality of life for all people, regardless of where they live, work, and play.
