A one day meeting on Nursing Now Campaign was held for Nursing and Midwifery Staff of the Council and some Senior Nursing and Midwifery Officers from the Teaching Hospitals, Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health.

Nursing Now is a three-year global campaign (2018-2020) which aims to improve health by raising the profile and status of nursing worldwide.It also seeks to empower nurses to take their place at the heart of tackling 21st Century health challenges and maximize their contribution to achieving Universal Health Coverage.



Opening the meeting, Registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Mr. Felix Nyante called on all Nurses in Ghana to join in the campaign which will mainly focus on:
1. Universal Health Coverage
2. Evidence of Impact
3. Leadership and Development
4. Sharing effective practice
5. Nightingale challenge

Appreciating the work of Nurses and Midwives in Ghana and all over the world, Mr. Nyante noted that Nurses are the lynchpin of health teams, playing a crucial role in health promotion, disease prevention, treatment and care.

He stressed that for all countries to reach Sustainable Development Goal 3 of health and well-being for all at all ages, the World Health Organization estimates that the world will need an additional 9 million nurses and midwives by 2030.



“These additional jobs represent a global opportunity for investment in health workers. The job benefits will be particularly beneficial for women and young people as demonstrated by the report of the UN Secretary-General’s High Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth”, he said.

He said the Council will equip nursing and midwifery professionals through training, support and the development of leadership skills to take their rightful place at the table when decisions are being taken about the future shape of healthcare in Ghana.

Participants pledged their utmost commitment towards the Nursing Now campaign.
