Triple Impact – how developing nursing will improve health, promote gender equality and support economic growth
World Health Organisation (WHO) "A new report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health (APPG) ” Triple Impact – how developing nursing will improve health, promote gender equality and support economic growth” calls for raising the profile of nursing globally and enabling nurses to work to their full potential if countries are to achieve universal health coverage. The report argues that increasing the number of nurses, and developing nursing, will also have the wider triple impact of improving health, promoting gender equality and supporting economic growth.
Released October 17, 2016, the report is the result of a review of nursing globally, undertaken by the APPG, who have over the last few months, held a number of hearings, collecting evidence and holding consultations on the findings with the Royal College of Nurses, International Council of Nurses, the World Health Organization and others."
