Operated by nurses and leading nursing internationally, ICN works to ensure quality nursing care for all and sound health policies globally.
March 8: International Women’s Day: “Equality for women is progress for all”. ICN works closely with nurses and national nurse associations across the world to change the paradigm of women’s health from one of illness to one that empowers women to optimize their health. The ICN manual, A Life Course Approach to Improve the Health and Well-being of Women, addresses the missed opportunities that exist within our daily practice to enhance the health of women within the communities in which we work, and provides guidance on actions that can be taken to enhance the health of women. ICN also produces many fact sheets on women’s health that can be accessed here.
The Connecting Nurses initiative is part of the ICN eHealth programme. Connecting Nurses: Every raindrop deepens the ocean.

Combatting this danger to public health requires a comprehensive strategy of multi-stakeholder collaboration at local and global levels.
