Today is World Health Day! In an effort to promote and instill health around the globe, the World Health Organization (WHO) is celebrates its annual World Health Day on April 7. Each year, the holiday highlights a new theme to raise global awareness. This year, we use this day to support nurses and midwives.

“Nurses and other health workers are at the forefront of COVID-19 response – providing high quality, respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and, in some instances, collecting data for clinical studies,” according to WHO. “Quite simply, without nurses, there would be no response.”
