Nursing Now: one month on – action nationally and globally

A lot has happened since the global launch of Nursing Now a month ago. This update contains news about how the campaign is spreading around the world with national Nursing Now groups being set up, with more to come. It also has a call to action – asking you to respond to the consultation by the High-level Commission on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs).

This is our first opportunity to influence health policy globally, please join in.

Call to action – influencing the High-level Commission on NCDs

There is a very short time scale to influence the final recommendations of the High-level Commission on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs), which will issue its final report in June. The Commission includes government leaders and health professionals from around the world and will help set the strategy for the future of preventing and treating cancer, diabetes, strokes, mental illness and other NCDs everywhere.  

This is the first moment for Nursing Now to influence global health policy on behalf of nurses and nursing. We want to see recognition of  and investment in  the vital role that nurses play in the prevention and treatment of NCDs. We are arguing that the Commission needs to mobilise the nursing and midwifery workforce to promote health and prevent diseases – and that progress can’t be made without fully engaging nurses and midwives.  

Find out more about what Nursing Now is saying about NCDs and how policy makers need to invest in nursing if we are to beat NCDs and save lives. We are working closely with Annette Kennedy, President of the International Council of Nurses, who is a member of the Commission on behalf of nurses, and Dr Sania Nishtar, both a Commission Co-Chair and champion of our campaign.

Review our guide to influencing the NCDs, which we will keep up to date. Please also fill out our form to share your examples of nurses and midwives promoting health and preventing NCDs, to inform our submission to the Commission's April consultation. 

Nursing Now is a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing (Registered Charity 1089849).
