Inter­na­tion­al Coun­cil of Nurs­es launch­es offi­cial Inter­na­tion­al Nurs­es Day video: Nurses:A Voice to Lead – Health is Human Right

Gene­va, Switzer­land; 11 May 2018 – In cel­e­bra­tion of Inter­na­tion­al Nurs­es Day on 12 May, the Inter­na­tion­al Coun­cil of Nurs­es (ICN) today launched its new video under the theme “Nurs­es: A Voice to Lead — Health is a Human Right”.  Via the video, web­site, toolk­it, posters and oth­er resources, ICN’s 2018 cam­paign show­cas­es exam­ples of nurse-led ini­tia­tives that enable hard-to-reach, under­served and vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tions to have access to the high­est stan­dards of health­care, no mat­ter the loca­tion and no mat­ter the set­ting.

“We are delight­ed to share this video cel­e­brat­ing the work of nurs­es in uphold­ing the human right to health and improv­ing access to afford­able, accept­able, safe, qual­i­ty care., Said ICN Pres­i­dent, Annette Kennedy.  “Invest­ing in nurs­ing saves lives, pre­vents dis­ease, heals, repairs and reha­bil­i­tates. It is there­fore an invest­ment in the wider econ­o­my and cru­cial that gov­ern­ments and organ­i­sa­tions world­wide val­ue, sup­port and invest in the nurs­ing pro­fes­sion.”

Accom­pa­ny­ing the offi­cial IND video, which pro­vides com­pre­hen­sive infor­ma­tion on the issues at stake, ICN has also pro­duced dozens of real-life case stud­ies sourced direct­ly from nurs­es com­ing from all regions; a YouTube series fea­tur­ing high-lev­el experts dis­cussing the role of nurs­ing in achiev­ing uni­ver­sal health cov­er­age; and guid­ance pack avail­able for free down­load, which explores the cur­rent sta­tus of the right to health glob­al­ly and the ways in which nurs­es are cen­tral to improv­ing access to care through more involve­ment in pol­i­cy-mak­ing.  All these resources can be found on: https://2018.icnvoicetolead.com/resources/

Pro­vid­ing essen­tial health care ser­vices to vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tions is the foun­da­tion of the nurs­ing pro­fes­sion, which is under­pinned by a code of ethics ensur­ing the pro­vi­sion of health care to all, regard­less of race, gen­der, reli­gion, eth­nic­i­ty or wealth. Nurs­ing care puts peo­ple at the cen­tre of care to improve patient expe­ri­ences, pro­mote pub­lic health and reduce health inequal­i­ties. More than any oth­er pro­fes­sion, nurs­es are the clos­est to those they treat and are best placed to assess the deter­mi­nants of health and lead health sys­tems towards more respon­sive frame­works.

When at least 400 mil­lion peo­ple glob­al­ly lack access to one or more essen­tial health ser­vices and 100 mil­lion fall into pover­ty each year pay­ing for these same ser­vices, it is time to turn to the core of health­care for solu­tions.

As the largest pro­fes­sion­al health work­force glob­al­ly, nurs­es are key in the pur­suit of Uni­ver­sal Health Cov­er­age and must be sup­port­ed by sound poli­cies and ful­ly inte­grat­ed in gov­ern­men­tal strate­gies to tack­le domes­tic health needs. The resources gath­ered in the IND web­site, www.icevoicetolead.com, strive to shed light on the many ways nurs­es are essen­tial in advanc­ing health­care and pro­vid­ing inno­v­a­tive solu­tions to their nations’ ever-grow­ing health needs and chal­lenges. This Inter­na­tion­al Nurs­es Day, the Inter­na­tion­al Coun­cil of Nurs­es is call­ing on nurs­es every­where to be a voice to lead and pro­mote health as a human right.
