IND 2024 report cover

Publication description

The theme for International Nurses Day 2024 is: “Our Nurses. Our Future. The economic power of care”. This theme and our IND report present an in-depth analysis of how elevating the nursing profession can catalyse transformative improvements in health care delivery, economic development, peace and societal well-being.

Our report demonstrates the impact that investing in the nursing workforce has, not only on the well-being of populations, but also on boosting economic growth by enhancing workforce productivity; strengthening health care systems, which is critical for ensuring preparedness and effective response during public health emergencies; alleviating poverty and improving gender equality; and contributing to social cohesion, peace and prosperity.

We urge all nurses to use this report to increase their influence on policy makers, employers and politicians so that everyone can benefit from the power of nurses and the economic returns that will ensue.
