World Health Day… our Nurses and Midwives on the front line
This World Health Day, we didn’t want to just celebrate our Community Nurses & Midwives, we wanted everyone to hear what they need to combat COVID-19 and existing epidemics.
Jazzie, Raissa and Mayflor are just some of the nurses and midwives doing fantastic work on the front line in lower income communities. Through the day, we shared videos from them, highlighting the work they do and the support they really need in practice – not just policy statements.
It’s more important than ever we listen and act on what they say… you can watch the videos here…

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) continue to be the leading cause of death globally, with four out of five people with an NCD living in LMICs. However, there is limited availability of affordable diagnostics for NCDs at the primary care level in many rural populations, making it one of the weakest links in the cascade of care. New innovations are needed to reach these populations with the accessible diagnostics services they need.
