Qatar joined the International Council of Nurses and countries worldwide in celebrating the achievements of all the nurses on International Nurses Day.
Every year May 12 is celebrated as Internatinal Nurses Day. The theme for this year is ‘Nurses: A Voice to Lead – A vision for future healthcare’, which focuses on the changes to and innovations in nursing and how this will ultimately shape the future of healthcare.
Minister of Public Health, H E Dr. Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, said, “The past year has been incredibly challenging for healthcare workers the world over and to the nursing staff across the healthcare system in Qatar. Nurses have been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 and the management of the preventive measures adopted by the healthcare system.
“For more than 14 months, nursing staff across Qatar’s health sector, and particularly at Hamad Medical Corporation and Primary Health Care Corporation, have fulfilled a multitude of roles in providing care for people who need medical treatment due to COVID-19 symptoms.
Additionally, our nurses have been central to the rapid roll out of the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program, which is enabling people to become protected against the virus and offers the hope of a return towards normal life. I am incredibly proud and thankful to each and every member of our nursing workforce for their professionalism and commitment to patient care that has led them to accomplish amazing feats.”
