20 November: Today ICN joins the celebrations for Universal Children’s Day. ICN has endorsed the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In particular, we believe that nurses have a role to play in monitoring implementation of children’s rights and reporting the abuse, neglect and exploitation of children to appropriate authorities.
ICN is directly contributing to the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 2: Achieve primary education through our Girl Child Education Fund, which supports the primary and secondary schooling of girls under the age of 18 in developing countries whose nurse parent or parents have died, paying for fees, uniforms, shoes and books.
