Barnmorskans år 2020

The Year of the Nurse and the Midwife 2020. WHO’s landmark announcement that 2020 will be the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife provides an important opportunity to advocate to strengthen midwives and the midwifery profession. For the first time, countries across the world will unite in recognition of the essential role that midwives play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage.

There is a growing momentum for midwives globally and we see 2020 as the first year of a future where every childbearing woman has acces to a midwife’s care for herself and her newborn.
