Celebrating the WHO's Year of the Nurse and the Midwife

In remembrance of Florence Nightingale, the mother of modern nursing, the World Heath Organization (WHO) has named 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.

In seeking to extend their role in critically informing healthcare governance and practices around the globe, Health, Risk & Society has set the below nursing and midwifery articles free for all to access until December 31, 2020.

By showcasing this content, we are using our platform to spread awareness of the risks and challenges in managing risk in midwifery and different domains of nursing. 

We are advocating for major funders to further invest in these critical specialties, with the ultimate goal of increasing research in the field.
