On Tuesday 27 February, Nursing Now will hold launch events and activities across the world. We are delighted that HRH The Duchess of Cambridge will be joining us at our launch in London.

Global events will take place in Geneva and London where we will introduce global champions, host high-level decision makers and hear from nurses working day to day with patients to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing nursing globally.

Meanwhile our partners in Uganda and across Africa are planning Nursing Now activities in different countries; one of our US partners. IntraHealth International organised a 23 January event to show how nursing improves gender equality while strengthening economies.

Our partners in Asia, including Singapore, are championing nursing through activities to promote the profession and celebrate the contribution of nurses to improving the health of all citizens.
